Welcome to Service Learning!
Spring 2018 CAVE Volunteer Applications and Service Learning Packets are due Friday, February 9th!
Community Action Volunteers in Education (CAVE) is a student-run, non-profit volunteer organization, offering more than 12 volunteer programs.
Service Learning students are enrolled in a CSU, Chico course which includes a community based experience. This is an exciting opportunity to get hands-on experience with the theories discussed in class, while serving a community need through a non-profit organization or school. You will learn more about the specifics of the course requirements the first week of class at your in-class orientation.
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 test. This test must have been taken within the past four years. Student TB Tests are offered at the Student Health Center.
The TB Test process requires two visits to the Health Center. 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 their shot and reading.
Student Health Center TB Clinics for Service Learning students will be held:
Initial Shot Reading
January 29th and 30th 5-7pm February 1st 5-7pm
February 5th and 6th 5-7pm February 8th 5-7pm
RETURNING Service Learning StudentsDue to the severe flu season being the Health Center requests Service Learning students to attend these clinic times to minimize exposure to germs during regular hours. Students should only go to the clinic times listed on the Health Center website if they absolutely go during the clinic times.
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.
