The California Department of Education (CDE) defines "service learning" as an instructional strategy in which community service opportunities are integrated into the curriculum, with the goal of enhancing the core curriculum and helping students meet academic standards and develop a sense of civic responsibility. "Community service" provides opportunities for students to volunteer for the benefit of the community, but is a separate course.
