Service Learning

CONAHEC’s Service Learning Exchange Option (SLEO) is an opportunity for students to acquire international experience and awareness through experiential learning involving hands on projects within a local community partnership. 

Service Learning experiences occur within a respectful environment and help build reciprocal relationships which will become transformational for the students and the society.  They are not regular classroom activities, but rather a series of activities outside the campus directly involving the community. 

Examples include a community service program in a rural community, an internship in a local newspaper, or participation on a multidisciplinary team conducting health education clinics in marginalized neighborhoods.
