"Adding a philanthropic component shows students how theories and questions from class have real-world implications. They see how ideas from class impact people’s lives and see the passion that drives the local nonprofits that they visited. Importantly, it also shows students that they can help ameliorate the social issues we discussed in class. They can join with their neighbors to make a difference."
