What is the difference between volunteering, internships and service-learning?
Volunteering is performing a service or good work, but it is not necessarily connected to classroom instruction.
Internships involve hands-on learning experiences but there may be little or no emphasis on service.
Service-learning focuses equally on the service being provided and the learning taking place. Service-learning meets a learning goal and involves reflection.
