The Coalition for Community Schools released a report called Community-based Learning: Engaging Students for Success and Citizenship. It highlights the value of the community-based learning approach to improving academic outcomes, including test scores, attendance rates, and graduation rates, as well as civic, moral, personal, social, and work-related outcomes. Research shows that as many as 60% of all students are disengaged from learning and that this is a key factor in the dropout rate. How do we combat this disengagement? Community-based Learning addresses these issues by involving students in real-world problem solving that ignites the imagination and the intellect of our young people. It sparks student's passion for learning and prepare them for success and citizenship. As highlighted in this paper, studies have shown that students who are involved in this approach have increased attendance rates, improved academic outcomes and are more likely to graduate on time.
This is a good report for concepts and a historical background. The report is now five years old, so it is a little out of date, and there are newer resources available online. The resources used are good, and some of those reports would be useful in research.

This is a web page that links to the pdf of a white paper supporting community-based learning. It is well-written and is substantiated with references. While not an easy read, it covers important topics, such as keeping students engaged in learning.
