Criteria (Checklist) for Student-Initiated Community Service-Learning (CSL) Placements

published: 10-Sep-2012    PDF (270kb)    CSL_Self_Initiated_Placements_Info_for_Web_as_at_04-04-2016.pdf

Self-initiated placements by students are intended to allow those students that already have volunteer positions with organizations to continue to be able to do those positions, or to allow them to find positions out of town, if they are commuting.  In addition for those students who are enrolled in an online course with a CSL component, they can self-initiate their own placement if they do not live in one of the communities for which CSL staff secures placements.  Currently staff are finding placements for Waterloo Region and the City of Brantford. 

Self-initiated placements must be approved by a CSL Coordinator before the student starts the placement. Please sign-up for the placement on the CSL Portal and ensure that the following criteria on this form are met.

Self-initiated placements must be submitted at the latest by the end of the first week of each term in order to provide enough time for staff to approve.
