Published in 1994, this book examines the processes through which independent school community service programs, as educational innovations, become more or less institutionalized in nine independent schools. The author considers school sponsored opportunities for students to serve in community-based organizations such as hospitals, day-care centres and nursing homes, and the aspects that influence the effectiveness of such programs.

As a result of the study our understanding of the processes and factors that appear to be associated with program institutionalization are deepened. The rationales underlying independent school community programs are also examined. Finally the book raises questions for further research in independent schools regarding the nature of change, the program development process, and the role of affective education.
