The Complete Guide to Service Learning is an award-winning collection of service activities, community service project ideas, quotes, reflections, and resources that will help teachers and youth workers engage young hearts and minds in reaching out and giving back. Author Cathryn Berger Kaye provides an overview of service learning—its importance, steps, essential elements, and challenges—within a curricular context, organized by theme.
