Are you interested in becoming a partner of the STM Engaged Learning Office?

We are always interested in exploring new partnerships with organizations who work with marginalized communities. If you are interested in finding volunteers through STM programs, we’d like to hear from you! There are a couple of things we would like you to know:

National and International Partners

We’re happy to have a conversation about prospective national and international partnerships. However, since education abroad and immersive service-learning is resource-intensive, please know that we rarely take on new national or international partners!

Local Partners

Most of our local programming requires that students volunteer an average of two hours per week in the community. This does not have to be an exact two hour shift every week, but we would like students to have a regular volunteering commitment throughout the term that adds up to roughly 20 hours. We find generally that it is best for both students and community partners if students have a regular weekly commitment.

With some exceptions, our programs run for an average of two and a half months: from late September to early December, and from late January to early April. Though some students do stay on to volunteer past this commitment, we can’t guarantee it. Because we do volunteer intake in September and January, the best times to get in touch with us to explore a prospective partnership are August and November.

If you are interested in partnering with the Engaged Learning Office, please get in touch with the Manager of Engaged and Experiential Learning, Caitlin Ward.
