Student Placements

The TRCC/MWAR accepts student placements. Student placements also described as field practicums, take place in a relationship between a school (high school, college or university) and the TRCC/MWAR organization. We support students to learn hands on what it means to work with survivors of sexual violence in an organization, on the front line as well as through administrative, fundraising and event planning work.

A student placement usually includes ‘requirements’ from the academic institution (to be fulfilled by the student at the placement), a mid term and final evaluation. It may also include a visit from a supervisor from your school to the TRCC/MWAR during the placement, including a set number of hours to be completed at the placement organization. Student placements earn a college credit or coop credit upon successful completion of the placement.

Student placements do not do interviews at the TRCC/MWAR. Instead we invite interested students to come to one of our Orientation Sessions during the year.

Orientation sessions happen during the 3rd Wednesday in the months of March and June.
