Canton Central School District | St. Lawrence University Community Based Learning

Canton Central School District

Option only for SOC-3118

Community Mentor: Emily Benkert, ebenk17@stlawu.edu

Agency and Placement Location: 99 State Street, Canton, NY 13617 

Transportation: Need Own Transportation, this means that CBL did not automatically reserve a SLU vehicle. Therefore, it is the student’s responsibility to access available resources to secure transportation. In these cases, a placement site is considered within walking/biking distance, or is within five miles of campus. Here are some alternative transportation options to consider: use a personal car that you are an insured driver for, walk, or bike. In some cases, it is possible to reserve a university vehicle from the regular fleet. *Contingent on its availability, students may also be able to reserve the CBL van. In order to utilize this form of transportation, students MUST complete SLU's Driver Certification training. The CBL office does not endorse the idea of students carpooling in personal vehicles. It is especially important that students understand the risks associated with carpooling. Carpooling should only be considered after all other options have been exhausted; when carpooling is necessary, both the driver and any riders must complete transportation waivers.

Projects: Students that choose this site will work with a teacher and assist with a variety of tasks as assigned by the respective teacher. Areas may include: one-on-one tutoring (particularly Math), literacy programming (focused on character strengths), homework help, etc.
