Abstract
In this qualitative study the author explores the research question: how does participation in community service affect personal and interpersonal development? Research data was gathered through personal interviews from six participants who were enrolled in an independent secondary school where participation in community service was a requirement for all students. The literature review includes research learning theories as well as a theological framework of service. The author concludes that service experience does influence personal development and that the particular service program of this study was perceived by the participants as having significant influence on their personal and interpersonal development.
