An International Perspective on Service-Learning

by Donald J. Eberly - 1997

In this chapter, "National Service" refers to programs of full-time service by young people, "service-learning" to the integration of community service with educational growth, and "national youth service" to the whole field embraced by National Service and service-learning. The expression "service-learning" is little used overseas. As a generic descriptor, "study service" is more apt to be employed. More common still is the name of the program itself, such as Germany's Zivildienst (Civilian Service) and Costa Rica's Trabajo Comunal Universitario (University Community Service).
