According to researchers at San Jose State University, Community learning is a teaching method that promotes student learning through active participation in meaningful and planned service experiences in the community that are directly related to course content. High quality community learning blends academic learning, practical experience, personal exploration and reflection on student roles and involvement in their communities. Community learning differs from volunteering and community service. Community learners focus not only on the service they provide, but also on the academic and personal learning they gain as a result of that service experience.
CCL works closely with corporate professionals, non-profit leaders, managers, professors and students to support the community learning experience. Our on-going research through training, development, and collaboration is essential to on-going community leadership.
