Service Learning

Service Learning is a term that you will hear around local and international schools these days, but what does it really mean?

Service Learning is the methodology used by teachers to connect content, skills, and/or dispositions taught in school to a genuine need in the community. It’s about community service, providing assistance and support to the local and international community where and when it is needed; it’s about getting connected with the wider community outside of your school or company; effectively, it’s the art of teaching community engagement.

American School of The Hague (ASH) has a long tradition of community engagement and students are involved in a variety of service initiatives at the school, in their local community, as well as with a range of Global Service Partners who work with the school to create unique learning opportunities that benefit the community and the students.
