This edited book looks at Service-Learning - a valuable means to promote civic engagement and youth leadership in students through the application of student learning to needy people in the community. It describes selected Service-Learning projects in different areas by highlighting the subjects being offered, service site(s), service projects completed, evaluation findings and reflections of teachers. Although Service-Learning has grown tremendously in the West, its development in different Chinese societies is still at its infancy. Thus, this book provides valuable insights on the implementation and future directions of the Service-Learning movement in different Chinese societies by documenting related experiences and sharing successful stories. It also examines related evaluation findings and impacts on students to show that through Service-Learning, empathy, social awareness, social responsibility and psychosocial skills of students can be strengthened and can eventually promote their quality of life. In addition, the book highlights that Service-Learning activities promote the well-being of clients and communities being served. It also stimulates thinking and sharpens the thoughts of educators, administrators and those who wish to promote the quality of life of students and service recipients through Service-Learning
