What's 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.
