Are you interested in service-learning? Would you like to learn how to develop a service-learning course? Using the National Youth Leadership Council’s Service-Learning Cycle as a framework, Jabari Bodrick will provide workshop attendees with step-by-step instructions on how to create a service-learning course.

Jabari will also explain how service-learning is defined at USC, provide USC service-learning assessment data, and highlight the benefits of service-learning to students, faculty members and community agency representatives. In addition, Minuette Floyd will share her experiences as a service-learning course instructor and, in conjunction with Jabari, answer any questions workshop attendees may have about teaching a service-learning course.
