Service-Learning

 Opportunities on Hold

What is Service-Learning?

An educational approach that integrates service in the community with intentional learning activities.

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 1,000 placements for Werklund students.
