Service learning educational approach balances formal instruction and direction with the opportunity to serve in the community in order to provide a pragmatic, progressive learning experience. This course will provide a series of exercises to allow students to reflect on their service experiences in order to grow in character, in problem-solving skills, and in an understanding on civic responsibility. Each year, D3 students will participate in a minimum of 8 hours of service, the course director will participate in the organization and will approve the events that will provide credit to the students.
