What Next?
Atlanta shares with other major American
cities its needs for increased services and its
large population of college students -- some
40,000 in the metropolitan area. In an attempt
to explore ways to meet urban needs, to offer
students a more relevant education, and to
bring campus and community closer together,
Atlanta students, city officials, higher education faculty and staff, regional and federal
agency officials are jointly launching the
Atlanta Service-Learning Conference.
Research: How are students' educational
and career choices affected through participation in service-learning programs?
Methods and Programs: How should a
service-learning program be designed for
implementation on a large scale?
Among the work group participants will be
members of the Atlanta Urban Corps and
other service-learning programs which will
form a practical laboratory for the Conference.
Meeting Series
Information Exchange and Results
The meeting on June 30 and July 1 marks
the opening event of the Conference. The
Conference will continue for six month,5 and
will sponsor periodic meetings to considn major dimensions of the service-learning concept.
The Conference will foster the exchange of
information among participants and with interested persons in other metropolitan areas.
It is already sponsoring surveys of student
manpower resources in the urb an area, of the
needs Gf the public and voluntary agency
sectors for student manpower, and of prese nt
college a nd univers ity programs helping to fill
these needs. A wrap-up meeting and publication is planned for the coming winter, when
pla ns for continuing the examin ation of servicelearning an d extending service-learning programs will be considered.
Work Groups
In exploring the service-learning concept,
work groups will be formed to concentrate o n
particular aspects of the idea. These work
groups, and a typical question t o be posed to
each of them , are listed below:
Service: How can the student make a
maximum contribution in his short term
Learning: What learning can take place
during the assignment?
Curriculum: What are the implications of
the service-learning idea for curricular development?
Financing: What is an equ itable distribution of cost among the host agency? the
college? the government?
Participation in the Conference is open to
all persons and groups interes ted in sharing
information on service-learning programs.
