In partnership with academic institutions, RJI coordinates Service Learning experiences for groups and individuals in all of Central America. Service Learning is a teaching method which combines community service with academic instruction, as it focuses on reflecting thinking and civic responsibility. Service Learning programs involve students in our communities´ development vision by addressing local needs, while developing their academic skills, sense of global responsibility and commitment to change. For most students, this is a life-changing experience that prepares them to be lifelong learners and leaders in their community and professions.
