Community Partner Resources

Service Learning partners with local agencies and non-profits with student volunteer needs to place appropriate students for service learning experiences.

Local agencies should contact the office to ensure that you have an Agency Information Sheet on file. The office maintains a file on each agency, the appropriate contact person and a description of volunteers opportunities with training expectations, time constraints, location and other relevant details.

We ask that our community partners be willing to help students learn about the organization, the population served and the systemic and civic supports and obstacles that you may experience. Students placed through our offices are participating in service to help meet academic outcomes and will use this experience as part of their course work.

For more information or to speak with our Director of Service Learning, please call (567) 661-2275.

Community Partners can also find appropriate forms and documentation on the forms webpage.
