Student Placements

Are you interested in completing your student placement with us? We are seeking post-secondary students looking to complete their placement with us - in the Summer and/or Fall and/or Winter terms.

A post-secondary practicum can provide students with an opportunity for professional development and first-hand experience in a community-based agency setting.

Most student placements with YSM involve some front-line community engagement and participation with staff/student/volunteer teams. They offer the opportunity for post-secondary students to become better prepared and equipped to serve those in the community who live with poverty while also providing invaluable learning opportunities to qualified students. Placements are also an exciting opportunity for YSM to expand our program capacity and help us further our ministry and mission.

The Volunteer Resources Department will approve all student placements before they begin with YSM.

We receive many inquiries from students seeking placements.
