As more college courses are taught online, maintaining course deliverables and learning to mirror face-to-face offerings is important to faculty, students, and accrediting agencies. Offering experiential and service learning is an increasingly important way to connect students to their local communities. This article presents a case study implementation of a service learning project in a hybrid (taught partially online) senior-level business seminar, which is moving to a fully online format. The format pairs business students with existing community partners that have defined projects and tasks for volunteers. Delivery strategies to engage students in civic and social organizations are presented along with benefits to students and to the community. Strategies for including college students in volunteer projects as an initial service learning experience are included. Areas for future research are also presented.
