Civic Engagement:

Our experience of volunteering has made us realize the purpose in life, which is to use our talents to give back. Service learning is a in itself a method of learning because not only do you learn something about the individuals that you are giving you services to, but you also learn things about yourself. This experience has motivated us to be more engaged in the future. We would encourage teachers and students and also friends to embrace service learning because it will change your life forever.
