Duration and Intensity in Service-Learning

This quarterly issue of the National Youth Leadership Council's Generator Newsletter focuses on "duration and intensity," in service-learning - part of the standards for quality service-learning. While there is no magic number of hours that results in optimal service-learning, longer and more in-depth experiences tend to result in greater gains for all involved. Learn about the research that supports this standard, read about a powerful middle school environmental program, and learn how to move your program from direct service to advocacy.
