Teaching about Service Learning through photography

With a grant from the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Foundation, the NCSU Student Media photography staff set out to teach students about service learning and have them use that knowledge to document a service learning project taking place in their community. After training young photographers in the basics of photography and explaining what makes a good photo, we were then able to explain to them service learning and allow them to become more aware of it in their community.
