  • This is an opportunity for students to learn job readiness skills, we ask students to exert their independence and lead their application efforts.
  • The Volunteer Services department is expecting you to assure all your necessary documents are submitted; we will not be calling you for things that are missing.
  • You will be required to attend one information session, and if accepted into the program, one orientation.
