Pathways Program

CSL Pathways Program

CSL gratefully acknowledges the generous donation by the Edmonton Community Foundation which makes the Pathways program possible.

Pathways allows UAlberta CSL students to experience and reflect on a rich and varied set of experiences with Edmonton community organizations.

Pathways is a journey through the non-profit sector composed of three integrated parts:

  1. Certificate in Community Engagement and Service-Learning
  2. Non-Profit Board Internship Program
  3. Paid 14-week summer internship with a local organization (5 internships will be available in the spring/summer 2023)*
