CET Community Engagement Training instructions

Background check
Start online training

Students: Follow the instructions below.
Faculty: Best practice and experience show that undergraduate students benefit immensely from preparation before they start direct-engagement work with neighborhoods and communities. Please help us to insure positive learning experiences for students and beneficial community work for our friends, neighbors and partners. There are also practical legal, safety, and security reasons for preparing students. 

Accounting for hours. Please assist us requiring your students to personally sign-in and sign-out of sites, and to get in the habit of doing this promptly and regularly. Your help insures that all students have truly completed hours and requirements of your class.

Call on us for help. The site coordinator or our community partners can often more accurately assist you about your student's performance on site. Contact Andrew Young, Volunteer Training Coordinator (youngaj@guilford.edu) or Guilford College student site coordinator directly.
Register for a site
Register your presence at a site or project. For security purposes we must track those authorized to be on site or working on a project.
