Students Teaching And Receiving Rewards

                                                           

             What is a S.T.A.R.R. Student?

A GVSU student who volunteers time at the Children's Enrichment Center. Volunteers will learn redirection methods, ways to be proactive vs. reactive to typical toddler behavior, and shadow education practitioners in a literacy rich program. 

             How the program works?

We ask that students commit to volunteer for at least one semester with a minimum of two hours a week at the Children's Enrichment Center.  All volunteers are required to have a TB test, it is the volunteer's responsibility to schedule and pay for the test.  Those interested in volunteering should contact the CEC to make an appointment to complete an application and schedule an orientation. Please check "Upcoming Events" to RSVP for an orientation time.  If this information is not available on the website please e-mail Sharalle Arnold at arnoldsh@gvsu.edu to schedule an appointment.   

Rationale

While the Children's Enrichment Center maintains licensing ratios, it is always beneficial to have extra eyes and ears to tend to the many demands of the young children served.  Secondly, GVSU students will benefit by taking an active role in a service learning project that calls for active participation.
