The community placement is an opportunity for students to gain practical skills by applying theoretical ideas about social and environmental justice in a community setting. This experience is founded on the dual pillars of providing a community service learning opportunity for the students while ensuring that the community organization benefits from the placement.
Students work with the program’s placement coordinator to secure a 120 hour community placement in a field that aligns with their interests. Students often undertake their placements in Brantford and Brant County, but it is also possible to undertake a placement at organizations throughout Ontario and beyond. Some students have even been placed internationally.
If you have an idea for an organization with which you would like to serve your placement, we will work with you to see if that is possible.
Here is a brief list of some of the types of organizations our students have served their placements:
