*Spring 2019 CAVE Volunteer Applications and Service Learning Packets are now complete.
*EDTE 255 and CHLD 492 Service Learning packets were due February 1st.
As you know, Community Action Volunteers in Education (CAVE) is a student-run non-profit volunteer organization offering different volunteer programs connecting CSU students to our local Chico community. We also work 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.
TB Tests are done if you are placed with older adults and may be required in school districts other than Chico Unified. The test is administered on the first visit and the results are read at the second visit. Students must wait 48 hours but no more than 72 hours between the test and reading. TB Test results are valid for one year for working with older adults and 4 years for working with children.
The Student Health Center administers TB Assessments and Tests for free. See the TB Clinic Times for the Spring 2019 Semester below:
First Clinic: Friday, January 25th TB Assessments ONLY!
12pm-3pm @ CAVE (BMU 309),

Please note: If you do not pass the TB Assessment, you will need to pass a TB Test for CAVE to place you. You can familiarize yourself with the questions of the test here and call the Health Center with any questions you may have.
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. This previous packet contains a letter of recommendation, a TB test, and a placement form signed by CAVE. However, each semester a returning Service Learning student enrolls in a Service Learning class they need to complete a student contact and introduction form, a personal and professional fitness form, and a risk and assumption form. Please open the link below to download and print the CAVE Returning Service Learning Application Packet and Instructions.
