Information For Students

Applying for a Student Placement

The Durham Rape Crisis Centre recognizes the importance of giving back to the community by supporting students in their educational pursuits.

We do accept student placement applications from both colleges and universities from a variety of programs. Please contact us to explore whether the goals of your student placement program would be a good fit with our agency mandate, vision and generally what we can offer to students.

Currently, we cannot accept student placements who require a placement supervisor with MSW credentials. We also limit the number of students we can accept throughout the year.

If you are interested in a student placement beginning in September, please contact the student placement co-ordinator by May. If you are interested in a placement for January, contact by October. If you are interested in a student placement for the summer please contact by March.

If you are interested in exploring the Durham Rape Crisis Centre as a placement site, please contact Lynn at (905) 444-9672 ext. 23 or for more information.
