How Service Learning Addresses the Mental Health Needs of Students in Urban Schools
Wilczenski, Felicia L.; Cook, Amy L.
Journal of School Counseling, v7 n25 p1-20 2009
Service learning promotes social-emotional and academic development through active engagement in community activities. It empowers students to think beyond themselves and to develop a commitment to serve others. In so doing, service learning builds connections with school and community that are critically important in urban settings. This paper links key components of effective mental health programs in urban schools with service learning.
