Service Learning

Making connections between the classroom and the community

It is our goal at Kilmer Middle School that all students will become more engaged in learning about their school and community needs to become productive 21st-century citizens. This year we will promote a school-wide service initiative, in which all students and members of the school community are encouraged to give back to the community at large.

What Types of Service Learning Can Students Do?

Direct Service Learning

Activities directly affect and involve the recipients.

Indirect Service Learning

Students do not see the recipients, however, their actions benefit the community or environment as a whole. Preparation and evidence collection are also part of Indirect Service Learning.

Research

Activities involve students finding, gathering, and reporting on information in the public interest. Preparation, evidence collection, and reflection activities are also part of Research.

Advocacy

Activities create awareness of or promote action on an issue of public interest.
