Both service-learning and School-to-Work are forms of experiential education that extend student learning into the community, and the work sites become centers of learning. Service learning and school-to-work programs engage students in learning experiences that help develop organizational, team, and problem-solving skills as well as the competencies and foundation skills identified as important for employability and responsible citizenship.
