Service-Learning Teaching Assistants (S-LTAs) act as a liaison and resource for S-L campus and community partners. Therefore, the S-LTA program is designed around five goals:
- training and supporting student S-LTAs to develop their leadership skills;
- assisting faculty members to implement the best practices of S-L in their course;
- supporting community partners to help ensure partnership goals are met through student and faculty engagement;
- aiding student service-learners in meeting their academic and service requirements and commitments; and
- serving as an extension of service-learning staff to facilitate a quality program that is academically rigorous and socially and ethically responsible.
S-LTAs are typically assigned to a single course, and therefore support a specific faculty member, cohort of students, and one or more community partnerships throughout the semester. In many ways, S-LTAs act as a project manager and logistics coordinator for the course and associated partnerships as a way to foster the principles of community engagement in the course.
The Service-Learning Street Team is a team of trailblazers focuses on two primary areas, (1) accompanying S-L students to their orientation or first day of service while providing an asset-based perspective of our neighboring communities, and (2) extending the marketing and outreach capacity of the S-L Program both on campus, in the community, and through social media.
