Educators eagerly implement service-learning initiatives with the best of intentions and high hopes for success of their service-learning projects. However, as the old saying goes, good intentions do not the way to success pave. Instead, much deliberate, careful and multifaceted planning must be done. Service-learning, by its very nature, involves the coming together of diverse individuals and groups, bringing differing needs, resources and expectations to the shared purpose of learning. Success relies upon the strength of the partnerships that are developed between all involved. Educators embarking on the journey of developing and implementing service-learning partnerships will be aided and supported by the rich, informative cases shared in Partnerships for Service Learning. In this text, the authors and associates weave detailed examples of successful partnerships into a guidebook for practitioners both new to and experienced in service-learning.
