Service Learning & Portfolio We understand that to develop the workers of tomorrow we as educators must be on the cutting edge of learning -individually and as an organization. We use and understand the concept of servant leadership and service to our communities. We use portfolio as a graduation requirement for our students so that they are able to articulate what they have learned and why that learning is relevant to employers. We create learner pathways that support multiple ways in which learning can happen.

Finding the balance Effective community service-learning programs are based on partnerships that have reciprocal benefits for the community organizations and the students. There should be a balance between the service being provided and the learning that is occurring. Clear roles and specific responsibilities are one of the hallmarks of a successful SL experience for the partners involved.
