Educators recognize the importance of understanding how students integrate community service learning with professional practice. This article provides insight into the student experience as expressed in the voices of pre-service social workers that completed community service field placements. The findings suggest a developmental model of learning with common themes that progressed from basic understanding to integration. Findings also suggest that service learning positively influenced the students in relation to personal and professional performance.
