"The Unheard Voices is one of the most accessible service-learning texts I have read, due in large part to the willingness of the contributors to let the community participants’ voices be heard extensively. This book provides a compelling vision and concrete steps for moving forward in new directions. It is a unique and important contribution to the service-learning literature and one that has the potential to change the discussion about and the future of service learning. In the end, The Unheard Voices will make our programs more effective"
