S-L Facilitators (Students)

 

Service-Learning Facilitators assist faculty by conducting and coordinating meaningful service-learning projects within Georgia Southern class rooms. Instructors are sometimes deterred from service-learning projects due to the time commitment and the additional organization required. The work of a Service-Learning Facilitator; organizing, planning, coordinating and leading a service-learning project, is invaluable for making new service-learning opportunities available on our campus.

Students enroll during regular registration in a free, non-credit course, LEAD 2100 – Leadership through Service-Learning. This course meets one evening a week for 12 weeks, with approximately two additional hours of reading & assignments each week. By the end of the course, students have a full understanding of service-learning, and have acquired the skills needed to facilitate a project. They also develop their unique service-learning project over the course of this semester.

The actual facilitator project takes place in the following semester. Students work within a specific, pre-approved service-learning course, supervised by the instructor, leading the service-learning component. After successfully completing their project with this faculty mentor, certified Service-Learning Facilitators join a group of trained students that professors may call upon to develop and guide future service-learning initiatives.
