Abstract: This research explores implications of service in learning for social change through an investigation of the Preparation for Social Action (PSA) Program in Uganda against the backdrop of the literature on service learning. Employing critical pedagogy as a theoretical framework, I approach questions regarding the conceptualization of self and society in service as a relational process, the conceptualization of service as praxis, and the conceptualization of social change within an orientation towards service. Through this analysis I present a case for conceptualizing service in learning within a dialogical framework oriented towards change.
