Service-Learning through Partnership with a Community High School: Impact on Minority Health Science Students
Saleh, Suha M.; Hamed, Kastro M.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v25 n1 p95-111 2014
Service-learning has been used to integrate an educational experience with community outreach, particularly among underserved populations. In this study, college students enrolled in a health science major were engaged in an educational outreach initiative with a group of students from a high school with a predominantly minority population. The college students participated in the development and delivery of a series of health science workshops to the high school students. Surveys were administered to both student groups before and after the initiative. The high school students improved in the self-efficacy dimension, while the college students also improved in empowerment, academic, civic responsibility, and career sectors.
