Abstract

In the researcher's hometown, in the last year of high school, there were two false fire-drills and two intentionally set fires. There was one firecracker set off in a restroom. At this school, swearing, fighting, and stealing among students have become common place. In addition to these, cases of verbal abuse of teachers, teen pregnancies, and substance abuse have increased. All these events happened in a 3 town with a population less than thirty-thousand, and the future does not look bright. This school, like many others is faced with teaching unmotivated students subjects they do not find relevant; it is searching for a solution. One program that is helping to change attitudes in other schools is community service learning. Definition of service Learning
