Post secondary students
We have different application intake processes for post-secondary students depending on their expected length of stay in Kingston.
For those who live in Kingston on a year-round basis and/or can make at least a 12 month commitment, we accept applications anytime.
If you are only here for the fall & winter terms, we set application deadlines in April and September.
While our minimum expected commitment is 6 months, we do recruit students for the spring/summer terms who can commit from the beginning of May to the end of August.
Important change to Fall 2013 intake process
In order to make our intake for the fall/winter term more efficient, we will be interviewing applicants in April 2013 to give them the spring/summer to submit the required documents. You can apply anytime during the winter term and we’ll be in touch in late March about next steps.
Those who applied by our September 7, 2012 deadline, but didn’t receive an interview, will be contacted in March 2013 and offered an interview for April.
Please note it can take anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks following an interview to be placed depending on how quickly the police records check, immunization and TB tests are submitted. We cannot ask for this information prior to making an offer of a volunteer placement and it is usually easier to collect this documentation from your home town.
Late applications and partial applications received at the time of the deadline will be filed for one year for possible future consideration.
