Evaluation of Service-Learning-Infused Courses with Refugee Families
Midgett, Aida; Doumas, Diana M.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v44 n2 p118-134 Apr 2016
This study evaluated the impact of service-learning-infused courses on multicultural competence and social justice advocacy skills among counseling students. The project, in which students acted as job coaches for refugee families, was integrated into 1st- and 2nd-year counseling courses. Results indicated an increase in multicultural knowledge and advocacy skills, with greater changes reported among 1st-year students. Implications for counselor training, including placement of service-learning projects within the counseling curriculum, are discussed.
