Abstract Details for Fostering Inclusive Volunteering and Service Learning

For individuals with disabilities to access and benefit from volunteering, the practice of inclusion is key. This NCWD guide, “Fostering Inclusive Volunteering and Service Learning,” provides information useful to youth service professionals and others interested in facilitating youth engagement in volunteer activities. It provides an overview of how youth can benefit from volunteering and describes different types of volunteer opportunities and the youth service professional’s role in assisting youth to prepare for, access, and learn from their experiences. Although targeted primarily to youth service professionals, the guide provides information useful to educators, counselors, practitioners, parents, and others interested in facilitating youth engagement in volunteer activities.
