"Connecting the classroom to the community..."
"Tell me and I forget.
Teach me and I may remember.
Involve me and I will learn." -Benjamin Franklin

What is Service-Learning?
Service-learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service opportunities into a student's coursework. Students are able to become active participants in the learning process by using what they learn in the classroom to solve real-life problems.
The mission of the Kingsborough Service-Learning Program is to place students in community sites related to their coursework with the dual goal of enhancing student learning outcomes and fulfilling the needs of the community.
The Office of Service-Learning provides training, support, and resources to participating faculty, students, and community organizations.
