Teach me and I may remember.
Involve me and I will learn."

What is Service-Learning?
Service-learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service opportunities into a student's coursework. Students are able to become active participants in the learning process by using what they learn in the classroom to solve real-life problems.

Mission:

The mission of the Kingsborough Service-Learning Program is to place students in community sites related to their coursework with the dual goal of enhancing student learning outcomes and fulfilling the needs of the community.

Functions:

The Office of Service-Learning provides training, support, and resources to participating faculty, students, and community organizations.
