Through participation in Drake’s service-learning programs you’ll work collaboratively with community partners, faculty, staff, and other students in programs that meet real needs in the community. But it’s not just charity work—it’s about you gaining practical knowledge and developing skills while providing service to others.
Service learning is a critical component of the Drake student experience. You’ll interact with a range of people from different cultures, develop a new understanding of civic responsibility, and gain career guidance and experience— all while doing good work to benefit the world around you.
