Improving Community Health and Safety Through Service Learning
The service-learning movement integrates community service with meaningful instruction and learning. One of the most rewarding aspects of service learning is the good feeling participants get from giving back to their communities at large, and a key way to give back is through improving community health and safety. This book explains the core principles of service learning and how to translate these values into programs that focus on public health and safety. Both domestic and international initiatives are discussed, and simple steps are laid out to encourage readers to get involved--both in their own backyards and across borders.
