This volume provides an overview of the most up-to-date thinking on leadership development through service-learning, including:
- the leadership competencies linked to service-learning experiences,
- the processes of ethical engagement in community partnerships,
- approaches for fostering more critical student reflection, and
- applied examples, including an in-depth case study of a leadership course series, a wealth of service programs led by students, a mentoring model linking college student service with youth leadership development, and a youth leadership program with a national scope.
The Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Student Leadership explores leadership concepts and pedagogical topics of interest to high school and college leadership educators.
