Orientation: Are you Eligible?


Students must have and be able to present a current CNM student ID card with photo and student ID number (not social security number). Without this, students cannot participate in the CNM Service Learning program.

Time Considerations

  • The minimum hours of service required is 15, but some agencies require more than 15 hours per term. 
    • Ask yourself if you have the time to commit to Service Learning and if you can consistently arrive on time. 
  • Allow extra time for enrolling in Service Learning, interviewing and training at the agency, and orientation sessions. 
  • It's better not to become involved than to sign up and withdraw later.

Possible Challenges

  • Working with real people and real-life situations can be eye-opening. 
  • You need a strong ability to make and keep a commitment.
  • Your ideas of life and our community may change.
  • Agency representatives may change.
  • People will be depending on you.
  • Emotional connections - You may become attached.
