In 2004, the JW McConnell Family Foundation in Canada issued a call for proposals for the Community Service-Learning program which received an overwhelming response. A dozen universities were funded by the Foundation, and many universities that did not receive grants also went on to launch programs using their own resources. The report, "Getting Wisdom: The Transformative Power of Community Service-Learning," tells the stories of several of these collaborations. The best examples of the community service-learning initiatives taking place across Canada demonstrate how that engagement can mobilize knowledge, help solve problems, and create responsible citizens.
