The goal for this workshop is to equip international students with the tools to have a successful service-learning experience. The first portion of the workshop prompts students to share their past experiences of service and asks them to compare and contrast this with a definition of service-learning used by the Carlson Center. Through an interactive activity, students will create their own personal definition of service and identify types of service that align with their definition. The second component of the workshop focuses on service-learning logistics. Topics covered include: how to register online for service-learning, factors to consider when choosing a service-learning site, reaching out to and communicating with a service-learning supervisor, and getting to the service-learning site using public transportation. Through interactive activities and role play, students will gain confidence in their ability to successfully select and engage with their service-learning site.
