Service-Learning in the Financial Planning Curriculum: Expanding Access to the Community
Annis, Paul M.; Palmer, Lance; Goetz, Joseph
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v102 n3 p16-21 2010
Service-learning projects are a cornerstone of student experiential learning. Such programs have proven to be mutually beneficial to communities and students within a variety of family and consumer sciences courses. However, there is a paucity of literature addressing service-learning efforts within the field of financial planning. There is an absence of research specifically exploring the community demand for service-learning projects in financial planning. This article illustrates community demand for services provided by students participating in a service-learning project offering income tax services and financial education over 3 years. Specific impact in the community is discussed. (Contains 1 figure.)
