Students select organizations for a number of reasons.
You may want to confirm or change career objectives. You can do this by performing your service in fields related to possible career choices. For example:
Would-be veterinarians have served at humane societies and wildlife rescue centers.
Future psychologists have worked with children and adults in a variety of agencies such as the Center for Drug Free Living and the Mental Health Association of Central Florida.
Planning to be a teacher? There are a number of public schools where you can explore this career field. You may want to broaden your professional perceptions by working in agencies tangential to your career:
Education majors, for example, might gain insights about children from experiences at Boys and Girls Club, juvenile detention centers, or the UCF Creative School for Children.
Art majors gain valuable experience through service with the Florida Hospital Artist-in-Residence program. A third source of motivation may be based on personal experience. You may want to serve at the American Cancer Society because a family member is dealing with cancer or provide Meals-on-Wheels in memory of a beloved grandparent.
How do I get my organization approved?Your organization will be approved through a quiz designed for this purpose. Your organization IS NOT approved until you earn 20 out of 20 on the Organization Approval Quiz.
If you are proposing an organization that is not on the list provided in Module 1.1, you must also include a webpage for your proposed organization and the organization\'s non-profit number.Once you have received approval for your organization, you will need to complete the Service Learning Contract for that organization. See the Homepage for links to the forms.
You will need to schedule an appointment with your supervisor to complete the Service Learning Contract. It is appropriate to share the Service Learning Time Log and Student Evaluation Form with your supervisors at the first meeting so that they will be familiar with the criteria and expectations for your service commitment.
You will sign the contract and your intended supervisor will sign it (this is the same supervisor who will sign your Time Log form and Evaluation form).
In the off chance that the organization that you select and start your hours with is not meeting your learning goals, you may switch. The goal is to perform your service hours with an organization that best fits your needs.
You must do this before you complete a maximum of 10 hours. Your new organization must be approved before you begin hours there.
This means that you will also have to fill out a new contract with your proposed supervisor.
Your first 10 hours will still count toward the total 50 hours. However, you must complete and turn in your updated contract or the hours with the new organization will not count.
