Reflection is the point in which youth volunteers cognitively process the information gained from their service experiences and service-learning activities. It is crucial to give youth volunteers the guidance and tools needed to meaningfully reflect in a healthy and productive way; that is why it is a requirement of the YVC model! More lesson-specific reflection ideas can be found at the end of each service-learning lesson in the Service-Learning Library.
