Abstract

Introduction to Community Service-Learning has been offered every fall and winter semester at Thompson Rivers University since fall 2009. It is a popular general elective open to first to fourth year international and domestic students from a variety of disciplines across campus. Every semester each student volunteers at one of 40 local not-for-profit organizations for a full semester. Students are required to complete 24 hours of service connected to their course work. In this poster session, 13 not-for-profit organizations will be represented by 30 SRCL 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 are:

  • JUMP
  • BC SPCA
  • Kamloops Therapeutic Riding Association
  • St. John Ambulance
  • Overlander Residential Care
  • Ponderosa Lodge
  • The Kamloops Food Bank
  • The X Radio
  • The ReStore - Habitat for Humanity
  • Kamloops Immigrant Services
  • Kamloops School of the Arts
  • Saudi Education Centre
