Why do you teach with Service Learning?

Students comprehend cognitive and practical skills better when they can apply what they are learning in the classroom to real life scenarios. The service learning projects conducted are excellent ways to accomplish this task by enhancing the health and well-being within LCCC and local community. 

Project Explanation:

Students completing a Service Learning project in Professor Augustine’s course connect community members with a variety of services. Some projects involve fitness testing, healthy living/eating talks, and engage others in health and fitness.

Success Story:

Students as a part of their spring 2010 HPED 285 course put on a Zumbathon fundraiser and raised over $1,300 to donate for the victims of the Haiti Earthquake that occurred January 12, 2010. The interns in 2011 and 2012 conducted complimentary fitness assessments for the LCCC campus and local community. They created educational handouts which provided information on ways to reduce stress and improve their blood pressure, vertical jump, flexibility, and grip strength.
