Abstract

The full-time service-learning summer practicum programme organized by Lingnan University aims to provide internship experiences that empower undergraduates to practice service leadership in community organizations. We report on a qualitative evaluation study that identified three success factors, namely, task significance and challengingness, coeducator presence and supportiveness, and students’ disposition for socially agentic self-initiation. The study broke these factors down into a number of sub-factors. We discuss the practical implications for service leadership development for undergraduates.
