Citizenship is complex and involves more than academic knowledge and skills. Effective citizenship education should prepare young people in three areas: civic literacy, civic virtues, and civically-engaged behaviors. This publication describes the connection between civic education and service learning, and provides lists of references, web resources, and print resources to assist practitioners in grounding service learning in civic education.
