We no longer are running a Child Development online job board, so reaching out to our Career Center or using Handshake is the best way to reach students with employment opportunities.
Gain experience and build your resume by volunteering with local non-profit organizations and schools. Connect what you are learning in your Child Development courses as you give back to the community. All sections of CHDV 115 require a minimum of 12 hours of Service Learning. In many other classes, Service Learning is an assignment option or can be used for extra credit. If you are interested, please explore the Service Learning website and talk to your instructor.
