Abstract

This service-learning project provided a venue for university students majoring in business administration to learn about the successful aging process while contributing to a positive quality of life for retirees living in a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC). The project provided the retirees an opportunity to learn computer skills that helped them engage in desired leisure time and business activities. Student insights into the teaching experience and the learning outcomes of the retirees are reported. The positive response of students and retirees to the service-learning project reinforces the benefit of out-of-classroom experiences in preparing students for future employment.
