Act Local or Global?: Comparing Student Experiences in Domestic and International Service-Learning Programs
Niehaus, Elizabeth; Crain, Léna Kavaliauskas
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v20 n1 p31-40 Fall 2013
International service-learning (ISL) is a popular way to facilitate student growth in the areas of cross-cultural learning and civic engagement. However, many have questioned whether international trips provide any added value compared to domestic service-learning. Using the context of Alternative Break programs, this study compares student experiences in similarly structured international and domestic service-learning programs. In doing so, it contributes to the larger debate over the relative costs and benefits of international service-learning programs.
