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.

Service-Learning for Diversity is an optional extension of the EDUC 450 course. Taking place in the Winter semester, Service-Learning for Diversity runs parallel to other Service-Learning opportunities offered through the Experiential Learning program. This opportunity allows students to gain first-hand experience working with children and youth from a variety of diverse backgrounds. This opportunity connects to a specific section of EDUC 450.
Applications for this opportunity open in the Fall semester.
