Extension and Higher Education Service-Learning: Toward a Community Development Service-Learning Model
Stoecker, Randy
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v18 n1 p15-42 2014
This article explores how on-the-ground Extension educators interface with higher education service-learning. Most service-learning in Extension has focused on precollege youth and 4-H. When we look at higher education service-learning and Extension in Wisconsin, we see that there is not as much connection as might be expected. County-based Extension educators in Wisconsin are not well connected to higher education service-learning and, when they are connected, they are not getting the benefit of best practices in the field. The article considers four models for better integrating service-learning with Extension: the direct service support model, the Extension as client model, the Extension as broker model, and the community development service-learning model.
