Please check back soon for updates on the SWASP 2014 (Community Service Component) Program. Thank you for your interest in 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 $1,400 tuition voucher upon completion of a 280-hour placement (8 weeks), plus a weekly stipend of $175. This program operates with financial support from the Government of Canada, Service Canada. Voucher payments to post secondary institutions are administered by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador.
In 2013, the Community Sector Council NL, with funding from Service Canada, administered 298 SWASP placements throughout the province. This was a change from previous years when CSC administered placements funded by Service Canada and the Provincial Government.
