As a learning and teaching organization, LAMP is committed to providing enriched placement opportunities for students looking for field placements, particularly those who are from equity seeking groups. Students are recognized as a valued and important part of helping to further LAMP strategic directions.

We accept a limited number of college and university students who express an interest in working with LAMP to improve quality of life by supporting people to reach their full potential and promoting the physical, emotional, social, and economic well-being of our community.

Due to the high volume of requests we receive for student placements and a limited number of LAMP staff who are available to supervise students, we regret that we are unable to find placements for everyone who applies. Finding a placement with us is dependent on whether your skills and learning requirements are a good fit with the staff available for supervising student placements.

How to Apply
In order to be considered for a student placement, candidates need to submit a complete application, as follows.

Please email the student application form, along with your résumé and a cover letter to volunteering@lampchc.org. Be sure to include the following:

  • the names of the programs at LAMP sites that you are interested in completing a student placement
  • if your school/program requires any specific academic or professional credentials of the student placement supervisor
  • and, information about the structure of your student placement (when the placement is to occur, days of the week, number of hours required etc.)

After we receive the above information, a program supervisor at LAMP will contact you directly for an interview if we have a possible placement available for you.
