Abstract

This study is aimed at developing, implementing, and assessing a service-learning project in an apparel design and merchandising program that enhances students’ learning outcomes, fosters agency in participants, and serves the community partner. The goals of the study were twofold: first, to create and implement a service-learning project, and second, to apply Carver’s Conceptual Framework for Experiential Education to assess the success of students’ learning outcomes after the implementation of the developed project and provide a framework for educators looking to incorporate service-learning projects into their curricula (Carver, 1997).
