Description

This poster describes a service-learning pilot course offered to undergraduate students. The course required eight students, from various disciplines, to provide 20 hours of service each to meet the need for activities at a day program at the Athens Community Council on Aging. Students completed strengths-based portfolios with four adults with disabilities and critically reflected on what they learned and experienced. The course design and outcomes are highlighted.
