Abstract

Introduction to Community Service-Learning (SERV 1000) has been offered every semester at Thompson Rivers University since Fall 2009. It is a very popular general elective course open to first to fourth year international and domestic students from a variety of program areas across campus. Every semester each student volunteers at one of approximately 40 local non-profit organizations for a full semester. Students are required to complete 24 hours of service connected to their course work. In this poster session, 9 local non-profit organizations will be represented by 24 SERV 1000 students. They will demonstrate: personal reflections on their service experiences, how their experiences connect to the course work and their organizations, and what they will take back to their own communities after the course is over.

Non-profit organizations represented:

  • JUMP
  • BC SPCA
  • St. John Ambulance
  • Overlander Residential Care
  • The X Radio
  • Kamloops Food Bank
  • Kamloops Immigrant Services
  • The ReStore - Habitat for Humanity
  • Operation Nicaragua
