Prairie State Service-Learning Leader schools in the Chicago area are leading the way in civic engagement at primary and secondary schools. It is with the help of these schools that we foster civic engagement for the future generation.
Service-learning books and other resources are now available for faculty use. These resources are housed in the five Chicago-area campus libraries. NLU faculty may check them out as two-week reserve items.
The NLU Civic Engagement Center also has a YouTube Channel with videos of the Service-Learning Symposium and past service trips to New Orleans. Pictures of service trips to New Orleans are available on Photobucket.
