Rural Community Engagement & Leadership Program

Teaching & Engagement, 2014


Results

Undergraduate students engaged with rural high school students to identify issues in the students’ community, leading to the creation of a service learning project to address those pre-identified issues. This project built the leadership capacity of rural high school students and increased their ability to positively impact their respective communities while also filling a community need.
