Experiential Education for Community Development
During the years in which I have worked to involve students in service to the community, three questions have increasingly demanded answers. First, must service (helping others, responding to need-call it what one will) always be regarded as an activity in its own right, separate from work, distinct from study, capable only of being undertaken on completion of training or in spare time? Might it not be part of the educational process itself, an extra dimension of the syllabus, the social equivalent of apprenticeship in its most elemental form?
