Volunteering

The best way to learn is by doing and implementing what you discuss in the classroom beyond its walls. As you practice and find ways to make those concepts work in real life, your understanding expands. You can continue learning by serving the needs of others; working in close interaction with communities and people who do not have access to a classroom, and making a real impact in those communities.

servicelearning Service learning is volunteering your time, knowledge and energy in activities that answer the needs of people around the world while providing you the guidance to expand your knowledge and skill-set from the experience with professionals committed to changing the world through their work in close interaction with field specialists.
