Service Practicum Placements

Supervisor Registration

Thank you for your interest in posting a position for the Columbia Bible College Service Practicum program.

Please Note: Information submitted will be made available as is to Columbia Bible College students, alumni, staff and faculty. Please ensure the information provided is accurate and that you have read the Organization/Supervisor Responsibilities.

Organization/Supervisor Responsibilities

  1. Provide the student with at least 2 hours of experiential learning each week. The student should be working with or providing a service to people if at all possible. This will provide the student with valuable service practicum experience. Students should be given clear expectations and responsibilities.
  2. Be available to the student(s) for supervision and encouragement throughout the semester, and meeting with them 2 times each semester, once during mid-term and once to discuss the final evaluation, which is worth 30-40% of the student’s Service Practicum grade. The College, through the student, will provide this evaluation form later in the semester.
  3. Inform student(s) of cancelled assignments in advance if at all possible.
  4. Enable the students to adhere to the following guidelines to avoid any potential for misconduct.
    1. When working with children/youth, Columbia students should have another adult or student present if at all possible.
    2. Students should only mentor same gender.
    3. Columbia Bible College recommends that organizations require a criminal record check for all students working with children, youth or persons with special needs.
  5. If a criminal record check or training is required of student(s) please indicate this on the application form and be willing to cover any related costs. The college is not responsible for any costs related to organizational requirements. Any costs to be covered by the student must be made clear to the student before they agree to participate in your program.
  6. Strive to resolve any concerns that may arise in the student’s relationship with other staff, volunteers or you as the supervisor. The Service Learning staff should only become involved if the concerns persist.

Attendance:
Students are expected to invest a minimum of 2 hours per week (10-12 individual sessions) over the course of the semester. It is possible to design a placement as a more concentrated service assignment, if applicable.

We expect students to be faithful in keeping their commitments as volunteers. If you note a student frequently missing a commitment that is not due to an illness, hazardous travel conditions, or because of a required College function, please contact Service Learning.
