Abstract: This article describes a service-learning case study and program description involving the development and the delivery of services in a Disciplinary Alternative Education Program for secondary students. Following an overview of the philosophy of constructivist theory applied to the concept of the dissemination of information concerning adolescent service-learning, a description of the service-learning model is featured. Specific recommendations for educators for both involving youth in the planning and then working collaboratively with them in the actual implementation of service oriented community projects are provided.
