A service-learning experience is a chance for you to become engaged in the community and work with children and youth in a variety of capacities. You may serve as a volunteer, tutor, or mentor in community settings or after-school programs.
When you enroll in a course with a service-learning component, you will work with your instructor to select an appropriate site. Service-learning experiences DO NOT take place in schools during regular school hours. Note that you may be required to complete a criminal background check at your volunteer facility.

Note: For COE students, we highly recommend you purchase tort liability insurance. It can be purchased for a minimal cost through student membership in professional organizations such as GAE or PAGE.
