Abstract: 
Our study examined the relationship of creativity self-efficacy and emotions of
high school students (n = 279) in Singapore before and after they attended a three
to five-day international service learning program. Participants completed a creativity
self efficacy scale, the Positive Affect and Negative Affect Scale (PANAS),
Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS) and Subjective Happiness Scale (SHS). We
found a positive, significant correlation between creativity efficacy and positive
affect, life satisfaction and subjective happiness but negative correlation with negative
mood affect. In addition, students whose creativity efficacy was moderately
high were found to have reported higher ratings of life satisfaction after having
participated in service learning. Our findings provide initial evidence suggesting
that service learning with positive intervention is positively related to creativity
self-efficacy and happiness of youth.
