About SWASP

The Community Service Component of the Student Work and Service Program (SWASP) is a program that enables students to work in their home community during the summer, develop transferable skills, explore career interests and help nonprofits carry out their programs. In return, they receive a $1,470 tuition voucher upon completion of a 280-hour placement (8 weeks), plus a stipend of $1,470. This program operates with financial support from the Government of Canada, Service Canada. Voucher payments to post secondary institutions are administered by the Community Sector Council of Newfoundland and Labrador.

In 2015, 291 students were placed with 285 organizations in 133 communities throughout Newfoundland and Labrador to complete their SWASP placements. A summary of SWASP activities in 2015 can be found in our Fact Sheet. Organizations receiving placements in 2015 can be found here.
