This study analyzed the narratives of a group of college students in so-called "Citizen Experience Reports" (REC). These reports provide an account of experiences carried out by students during their social service. The objective was to analyze these narratives and identify the level of development of related skills concerning citizenship, using for this purpose the institutional definition of citizenship and the operative model created by Cantu, García and Ochman (2008). It was found that some of the components of the competences related to the citizen construction such as tolerance, respect, analysis, judgment, responsibility, and identity are the most common references in the student's narratives and that some variables such as gender may establish differences in these reports.
