This article analyzes the planning and implementation of a Service-Learning- (SL) as a curricular practice. The aim of this study is to describe the development of the SL project as a curricular practice linked to the territory and to analyze the curriculum negotiation strategies and student participation in the educational practice. Methodologically, it is a case study with an ethnographic approach, where have been used qualitative tools such as participant observation, interviews and focus groups, documentary analysis and the research diary. The results show the process of negotiation and development of the SL practice carried out among all sectors of the educational community. It was through the use of cooperative dynamics and participatory social diagnosis such as social cartography, cooperative learning and classroom assemblies. In addition, the main participatory strategies developed by students are highlighted, such as those that facilitate their own voice in a collaborative work, like theater or mockups, and others oriented towards the knowledge mobilization using social networks. Discussion section emphasizes the relevance and educational value of this experience of participation and democratic negotiation of the curriculum due to the few initiatives that exist in this regard and the fact of reconciling it with the interests of the territory.

Keywords : School community relationship; student participation; democratization of education; intercultural education; Service-Learning.
