Academic Credit at Marymount Manhattan College for Student Volunteers.
The report describes a 2-year project at Marymount Manhattan College (New York) to develop and implement a community service program which provides student participants with tuition credits. Students served in either a shelter for homeless women or with a tutorial program for adults preparing for the high-school equivalency examination. The report relies on quotes from student logs to demonstrate the program's effectiveness in enriching the lives of both students and community recipients of student services. Suggestions for similar programs include ensuring appropriate supervision and making the internship course more accessible to all students. (DB)
