Listed below are the Fall 2017 service placements associated with each Freshman Service-Learning Course. Freshman Service-Learning students, by the end of July, should review Making a Good Match and identify three preferred placements before continuing on to complete the placement questionnaire.

Making a Good Match – Freshmen

  • Read each placement description listed for your class located on the FaithJustice Web Site.
  • Try to determine which site best fits your interests and your personal work style. Some questions to ask yourself, that might be helpful:
    • What kind of service does the organization provide?
    • What population does the agency serve?
    • Are volunteers expected to take initiative at the organization, or are there specific tasks that must be performed by the volunteers?
    • Are there specific qualifications required by the organization that I may or may not meet?
    • Am I willing to venture outside of my comfort zone to volunteer at an agency that will support my decision to grow?
  • Each placement description offers a volunteer profile. This profile will be helpful to you in your decision making process.
  • In addition to the information provided on the placement description, I encourage you to do your own research and go to the agency website. We do not include agency websites on our placement descriptions for internal, administrative reasons. However, you should be able to access most agencies using one or more search engines.
