Current Requests for Partnerships

How to apply for a student team
Any non-profit organization in the Niagara Region is eligible to apply for a student team. Any small (10 or fewer employees) business in Niagara Region is eligible to apply for a student team. Since Service-Learning is linked to courses with specific learning goals for the students, organizations can read the Request for Partnership (RFP) and respond as directed to those that fit their needs and timing. 

The students generally choose from a list of potential projects selecting the one that appeals to them. Often there are more requests than teams but we do our best accommodate as many requests as possible.
