The California State University produces 60% of California’s teachers and 10% of the nation’s teachers. In order to prepare teachers that are ready to implement and use service learning as a teaching method, teacher education and service-learning leaders have combined their efforts to support the infusion of service learning into teacher education programs. Since 1999, several initiatives have taken place in the CSU, particularly in partnership with the Service Learning 2000 Division of Youth Service California.

"Service learning provides the opportunity to expand dramatically both the extent and the nature of practical experiences for teacher education candidates."
