A Notebook on Service-Learning.
North Carolina Internship Office, Raleigh.
The North Carolina Internship Office (NCIO) has sponsored for the past several years a service-learning program for college students. NCIO has prepared this booklet to make readily available abstracted and consolidated information about the service-learning internship model and to suggest organizational policy considerations for making service-learning opportunities accessible to more young people. Sections I through IV define service-learning, identify the roles of participants in the service-learning model, and suggest the objectives (benefits) of service-learning internships. Section II also presents information on the nature and scope of existing public-need-based learning programs, indicates a need for greater conceptual and organizational clarity within off-campus learning efforts, and offers policy suggestions for educational institutions and public or private organizations to enhance service-learning opportunities for young people. The appendices indicate tools and resources that have proven useful in facilitating student service and learning in the context of human and public needs. (Author/HS)
