The Department of Service Learning provides guidance and assistance to hundreds of students who engage in short- and long-term service-learning projects in one of Daemen’s three partner communities (Seneca Babcock, the West Side, Broadway Fillmore) or at other Daemen sponsored service placements. Within these urban, disadvantaged neighborhoods, students serve, learn, and gain the leadership, cross-cultural, and communication skills necessary to become civic-minded individuals prepared to contribute and participate in a democratic society.
