Abstract

Service learning opportunities lend salience and external stakeholders to course projects. Further, they offer students an opportunity to participate in something that reaches beyond the classroom. Here, we describe a service-learning volunteer opportunity and course project conducted in collaboration with two all-girl orphanages, in India and Uganda. The collaboration stemmed from an observed opportunity to distribute the product of student projects to the under-served communities represented in the orphanages, and to provide an appropriate “consumer” target for developing student work. Structure, outcomes, and student response are outlined.
