The $100 Solution™
The $100 Solution™ utilizes course learning objectives combined with the five principles of service-learning to answer a central question for students: with this $100 bill, what can I do to enhance quality of life for others? It teaches students to ask what they can do rather than self-determining needs of others, and it demonstrates that many social problems exist that can be solved with small amounts of money, or rather, by even thinking beyond monetary solutions to make a difference in their community.
