3 semester credits. This service learning project provides students the opportunity to interact in an active involvement in Italian society through the combination of community service with academic instruction. Students will be assigned to local organizations, NGOs, and cultural associations according to their area of interest, expertise, and if required, command of the Italian language. Student involvement, emphasizing reciprocal learning, will address community needs and civic responsibility and will promote critical thinking. Depending on their concentration and major, students can carry out their activity within certain programs and departments at FUA and Palazzi. This course includes community service hours within the Florentine Community.
