Recruit Service-Learners

SF State is committed to building partnerships with organizations that choose to host an internship experience at their job site with the intention of connecting academic content to career experience, learning specific career skill sets needed for their profession. 

Service learning is a teaching methodology that utilizes service experiences in the community as text for learning in the classroom. Nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and schools serve as co-educators and provide real-world learning situations for students to address unmet community needs. Service-learning activities inform, clarify, illustrate and stimulate additional thought about academic topics covered in the classroom, as well as encourage students to develop or strengthen a habit of service, social responsibility, and community engagement. On-site work or projects are combined with reflective academic assignments that help students learn by doing.

If this is the first time your organization (do not have a current Learning Site Placement agreement and ULink account) will be hosting service-learner, please refer to below link:

Partner organizations can log into their ULink account to manage current and post new opportunities. Review to the following webpage:

If you are a department/program/division on campus and are wanting to host service-learners and do not currently have an ULink account, please please refer to below link:

Per Enterprise Risk Management, all SF State-affiliated on-campus programs/depts./divisions wishing to host service learners will be provided an "On-Campus Learning Site Acknowledgment" to review.  

If you are a student organization group at SF State, we recommend that you post your available opportunities on the SF State Activities & Events platform, specifically for on-campus student organizations and clubs.
