Service-Learning has proved to be a powerful and practical methodology and tool with far-reaching implications. Benefits have included increased civic engagement, enhanced sense of purpose, greater feeling of fulfillment, nurtured creativity, and promotion of problem-solving skills and social responsibility as traditional classrooms have moved to the communities and students have become service providers and learners. The papers in this book span a good part of the globe and cover a wide application spectrum, from health care, business administration, nursing, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy to gerontology and food service. Extended models and prototypes explored include community engaged learning, long-distance learning, and the bridge between older and younger students.
