Service learning is a teaching methodology that integrates service projects with classroom learning. It offers students the unique opportunity to get involved in the community and connect what they learn in the classroom with real-life issues. By putting students in a setting where they work to meet the needs of the community, service learning promotes social responsibility, broadens the students’ perspectives, and also cultivates interpersonal and leadership skills
Integrated within ALH’s regular academic curriculum are Service Learning opportunities in which the student body is required to participate. Each student at Albany Leadership is required to complete 90 hours of service learning prior to graduation.
