Fall 2019 CAVE Volunteer Applications and Service Learning Packets are due Friday, September 13th by 5pm
*Important Updates for TB Tests as of August, 2019*
Due to a national shortage of TB Tests, the Chico State Health Center currently has a limited supply of TB Tests. The Chico Health Center is still doing TB Assessments free for students.
If you are volunteering in a Chico Unified School District classroom, you will only need a documentation of a negative TB Assessment to be cleared by CAVE.
However, if you answer “yes” to any questions of the TB Assessment, you will need documentation of a negative TB Test to be cleared by CAVE. If you live in Butte County, Enloe Hospital and Butte County Public Health still have TB Tests at a cost if you can’t get one at the Health Center. Please see the chart below for more information on local agencies that still have TB Tests.
|Name||Address||Phone||Up Front Cost||Appointment Needed?|
|Butte County Public Health Center – Chico||695 Oleander Avenue
Chico, CA 95926
|Enloe Prompt Care at California Park||888 Lakeside Village Commons

When you confirm the requirements, check your nearest California State University Student Health Center and your local Public Health office and to see if they have TB Assessment and/or Tests available and at what cost. The Student Health Center fees that all Chico State students pay allow students to access all Student Health Center services at other campuses.

*EDTE 255 Learning packets are due Friday, September 6th by 5pm.
Community Action Volunteers in Education (CAVE) works with various University courses that have a service learning component to place students with our existing partners. This is an excellent opportunity to get experience with the theories discussed in class while serving a community need in a classroom or a community-based organization. We look forward to working in partnership with you, your course instructor and your placement site.
NEW Service Learning Students
If this is the first time you’ve enrolled in a service learning class, open the link below to download and print the CAVE Service Learning Application Packet and instructions. Please read the instructions carefully, as there are additional documents to attach to the packet before it can be submitted.
Service Learning students must submit proof of a negative TB Assessment or Test. TB Assessments are required if you are placed in Chico Unified School. A health care professional administers a questionnaire and will give you a copy of the results. TB Assessments are valid for 4 years.
RETURNING Service Learning Students
A student is considered a returning service learning student if they previously completed a CAVE Service Learning packet for another course. Please open the link below to download and print the CAVE Returning Service Learning Application Packet and Instructions.
