Experience More SERV 3000
Service-Learning 3000 provides third and fourth-year students with faculty supervised service-learning opportunities. This section of service-learning provides senior-level students with an extended opportunity to be engaged in and contribute to a local, not-for-profit organization in Kamloops on selected projects based on the organization’s need.
Students working on projects for the community organization will have key roles assisting with specific projects. In addition, students will be required to spend part of their time providing direct service at the organization’s site, thereby enriching their overall service-learning experiences and increasing their knowledge of the critical role this organization has in the Kamloops community.
