Over the past few years, the notion of service-learning at all levels of formal education has become engrained in many places and institutions. The National Service-Learning Clearinghouse (NSLC) is perhaps the best known organization working in this area, and on their website visitors will find a cornucopia of information and educational resources designed for persons interested in this growing field. First-time visitors may wish to take the site tour offered here, and then move along to the "Highlights" section. Here, users will find links to the NSLC's own Journal for Civic Commitment and toolkits designed to help institutions of higher education create meaningful service-learning relationships with community groups. Visitors will also be glad to learn that the site has a very user-friendly search engine, and that they can also browse materials at their leisure. The site is rounded out by an "Events & Jobs" area that brings together complete calendars of service-learning related conferences and activities, along with an updated list of job opportunities in the service-learning field.
