DO YOU NEED A VOLUNTEER STUDENT?
Students in the Department of Sign Language Interpretation at Douglas College do volunteer service learning work for events where extra hands are needed.
Please make your request at least two weeks in advance of the event. Send us an email at
firstname.lastname@example.org and include all the following information:
- What time? (start and finish time)
- What is the event?
- Your email address?
Students are available to do volunteer service learning work only if they are not in classes. The program technician will reply to your message within two or three days so you know we have received your request.
All requests for volunteers will be checked by department faculty. Students do volunteer work to help them learn how to work with Deaf people in the community. Your requests to have students do service learning for you helps prepare them to be skilled professional interpreters in the future.
If you are not sure if your request is appropriate for students, please send it to us and we will let you know if it’s possible for students to attend. Examples of the kind of events where students provide a helping hand include:
- Setting up for an event
- Clean up after an event
- Taking pictures
