Faith, values, and service-learning: Resources from the archives

June 22, 2017

GSL 5: Dignity and Justice in Global Service Learning, to be held at the University of Notre Dame (April 2018), seeks to create a space for active listening and critical dialogue between secular and faith-based organizations that are committed to co-educating and collaborating for social change and that wish to recover and re-examine the values which underlie the work.

Aligned with the GSL 5 Summit themes, we wanted to highlight resources from our archives that explore faith, values, and service-learning.

Faith and Service-Learning: Embracing Difficult Questions by Jessica Friedrichs, a Faculty Member in the School for Social Change and Coordinator of Service-Learning at Carlow University.

Teaching Catholic Social Thought through Global Service-Learning by Rachel Tomas Morgan, Associate Director of the Center for Social Concerns at the University of Notre Dame.

Part 1 – The Hole in our Helping

Part 2 – Service versus charity, institutional self-interest, and individualist ethos
