This Leadership Application Project outlined various aspects of youth service learning. This proiect included information about the history and evolution of service learning, included definitions and examples of service learning, and differentiated service learning from community service and experiential education. Emphasis was placed on the importance of reflection in service learning and on the expected positive outcomes for students. Based on interviews with colleagues, a teacher handbook was developed to accompany the research about service learning. The handbook included general information for teachers about youth service learning, as well as examples of lessons and service learning units.
