Abstract:One of the accomplishments of the study is refining the model of service-learning impacts. Various models of service learning, including the model presented by Eyler at al. (2001), define career impact as a separate category. The results here show that career impact cannot be isolated from personal outcomes of service learning, such as personal efficacy, ability to work well with others, leadership and communication skills, or from social impacts such as commitment to service, or learning outcomes, such as ability to apply what has been learned in the real world, problem solving and critical thinking. These outcomes are all integral to career development.
