Student Placements

ACSA accepts a limited number of college and university placement students every year. Our student placements are a great opportunity for students to gain first-hand experience in a community setting and turn theory into practice.

All of our placements are specialized by department. Please see the below listing of our current placement opportunities.

Please note that all of our student placement positions are unpaid. If you're looking for paid work at ACSA, please click here to see our job postings.


Currently available student placement opportunities (Fall-Winter 2019):

We ask that students interested in completing a placement with us submit the following to our Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator by e-mail at

  1. A cover letter tailored to one of the above student placement opportunities in which they explain why they're interested in the opportunity and why they think they're a good candidate
  2. Their resume
  3. Information on their placement (please include the name of your school, the amount of hours required for your placement, and what days of the week the placement is expected to run)

Students are welcome to apply to more than one opportunity. Tailoring cover letters for each opportunity is recommended as it gives students the ability to highlight their interests, strengths, experiences, and skills related to each opportunity. This is also important as we do not offer general placements. All of our placements are tailored to a specific department and thus non-specific applications are discouraged.

If you have any questions, please contact the Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator at, or 416-321-6912 ext. 248.

We look forward to hearing from you!
