Publication Title Policy Update: Harnessing Service Learning to Build Social, Emotional, and Academic Skills
Description As of the 2017–18 school year, state policy in 37 states and the District of Columbia required or encouraged districts to include community service education or service learning programs (figure 1).1 These states recognize the potential of service learning to connect academic curricula to community problem solving and to build students’ social, emotional, and academic competencies, including social awareness, empathy, and ethical responsibility.2 The instructional practice also fosters civic engagement, career exploration, and school connectedness.
