Fall 2018 CAVE Volunteer Applications and Service Learning Packets are due Wednesday, September 19th!
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 a school setting. 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. 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.
The Student Health Center administers TB Assessments and Tests for free. For their current TB Testing Clinic Hours, please see their website. We will also accept copies of TB Tests or Assessments results from your doctor or the school district.
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.
