Canadian Alliance for Community Service-Learning
In service-learning, you will have a chance to work with children and youth, apply course concepts to the real world, and get co-curricular credit while you build your professional network.
We're proud to be working with a wide range of community and campus partners as part of the service-learning program. Since 2016, our partner organizations have provided over 1,700 placements for Werklund students.
These are the Service-Learning opportunities available for the Spring semester. Please use the red "Learn More" buttons to see more information about each opportunity.
