Title Framework for Youth International Service-Learning Programs
Creator Kimberly S. Love
Subject MACL
Description A growing trend of apathy towards civic engagement and lack of global competence exists among young adults. An effective tool to counter this trend is international service-learning experiences for youth and young adults that provide cultural-general training, exposure to diverse populations and reflection. This study examines a framework for international service-learning that includes cultural identity training, in-country service experiences, and post-trip reflective workshops. Analysis of the data reveals that students developed cultural relativism, empathy, self-efficacy, and a desire for future humanitarian or civic service.
