The Impact of Service Learning on Nonprofits

Service: Program evaluation

Research Area: Housing & Community Development

In 2007, PPI received a research grant from the Indiana University Center on Philanthropy to study the impact of managing service learners on nonprofits. The researchers asked: What kinds of agencies involve student service learners? How is managing student service-learners different from managing other kinds of volunteers? What value do community agencies see in student involvement, and what challenges do they encounter? What contributions do host agencies make to student learning? And what can colleges learn from these agencies when it comes to understanding the activities that make service learning work best?
