The Student Leadership in Service Learning Program (SL2) is one of the most integral programs of the Service Learning Institute. The SL2 Program plays an important role in creating peer to peer mentorship for CSUMB students engaging in service learning courses. Service Learning Student Leaders support students, faculty and community partners in connecting concepts within the service learning courses to the service activities performed by students at community partner sites. This helps facilitate the development of a community motivated for social change.
