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.
Opportunities On Hold
Some Service Learning placements are not available this year due to different factors. We are working with our partners to provide as many opportunities as possible.
