Site Approval Form.docx

Students may elect to arrange a qualifying volunteer experience as the immersion portion of the CCE requirement. This is a particularly favorable option for students wanting to align the experience specifically to their major field of study, those requiring additional scheduling flexibility or students facing economic challenges. For the service learning program, students are charged with selecting a location wherein they will be working directly with diverse populations to fulfill the immersive portion of their CCE in tandem with enrollment in the two-credit CCS 300 Service Learning course.
When proposing a location, it is critical to understand that the primary criteria for approval is reciprocity between you and people representing the culture you are working with. While you may be at your site to perform a service, the site must foster an environment of mutual respect wherein relationships can be built, cultural differences can be explored and insight can be gained from all participants.  If you need assistance finding a volunteer site that would meet the criteria, please contact Cyd Fode at cfode@carrollu.edu.
Core Requirements:
For approval, student must complete a minimum of 60 contact hours at the approved site. For the semester, this averages out to roughly five hours per week of volunteer time. Non-contact hours (such as orientations, driving, etc.) may not be used towards fulfilling the 60 hour minimum.

 
Pre-requisite:  Participation in a pre-approved immersion experience.   When you click 'Apply Now' you will be asked to complete a CCE Site Approval Form and your site will be reviewed by the Director of General Education.  Your site must be approved before hand.  If you are unsure about your site or unsure how to complete that part of the application, please contact Cyd Fode (cfode@carrollu.edu) or piosvolunteer@gmail.com  Once sites are approved, applications will be accepted for Fall 2017 until the class is filled.
