Through volunteering, college students use what they learn in the classroom to solve real-life problems. They not only learn the practical applications of their studies, they become actively contributing citizens and community members through the service they perform.

Volunteerism/Service-learning can be applied in a wide variety of settings, including schools, universities, and community-based and faith-based organizations. It can involve one student, a group of students, a classroom or an entire school. Students build character and become active participants as they work with others in their school and community to create service projects in areas such as education, social services, public safety, and the environment.

Volunteerism/Service-learning offers all its participants a chance to take part in active education while simultaneously addressing the concerns, needs, and hopes of communities.
