Service Learning

What is Service Learning and why should I be involved?

Service Learning is a program in which you will learn and develop through thoughtfully organized service experiences that meet real community needs. The program combines academic instruction with active community service, utilizing critical, reflective thinking to examine the world around you and your civic responsibilities. North Lake's Service Learning Program offers you an opportunity to serve at a wide variety of charitable and social agencies.
