Service Learning: Starting Point

CNCS isn't a household word, and maybe AmeriCorp isn't, either. But they make a great starting point for researching "service learning." For many college students, the service learning route is preferred to internships, practicums, and co-ops. You may have called it "volunteer work" up to now, but with a little digging around the CNCS web site, you'll find that service learning is an extensive network of activities and stakeholders. You may find your calling through CNCS and its "family" of programs.
