Service Learning Integrated in Urban School Counselor Preparation
Wilczenski, Felicia L.; Schumacher, Rebecca A.
Journal of School Counseling, v6 n12 2008
School counseling graduate students are preparing for a special relationship with the communities in which they serve, that is, to care for the personal, social, and educational well-being of children and adolescents. School counselor program faculty need to educate and instill in their students a sense of their ethical responsibilities to those communities. Service learning can foster an ethic of care. This article describes how future school counselors are prepared through service-learning pre-practicum and practicum with the understandings, skills, and dispositions to support high needs urban secondary students through the complexity of the post-secondary planning process and the transition to a successful university experience.
