Carizon partners with a variety of educational institutions to assist their students in the process of completing their course requirements. We provide a limited number of unpaid placements each semester of the year in several of our programs. These placements are often booked 6-12 months in advance, so students wishing to be considered should act accordingly.
Placements from the following college and university programs of study have already proved to be a good fit; Child & Youth Worker, Bachelor Social Work, Master Social Work, Criminology and Community Justice, Counselling, Social Services, Psychology, etc. We would be happy to explore additional possibilities outside of these specific programs upon request.
Carizon programs currently taking educational placements are as follows;
- Community Programs
- Children’s Mental Health
- Clinical Counselling
- Pathways to Education
These placements may have different names (field education, field placement, community service learning, internship, co-op, externship, etc) and different hour commitments (anywhere between 41 hours and 560 hours). The process to follow for all of these is the same. Students or their advisors can send an enquiry directly to the Volunteer Coordinator by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. They should include an updated resume and provide the following information: school name, program of studies, year of program, anticipated placement start and end dates, total hours required, days/hours per week desired, preferred Carizon program.
Each student applying will be answered promptly. If no placements are available at the time and place requested, the student will be informed. If placements are available, the student will be advised of the next steps (interview, screening, etc).
