Tips For Applying

Thank you for deciding to apply for a GSC volunteer service-learning program.

1. Download and print your Application Form, fill it out and at email to GSC.

2. Prepare your resume plus a one-page personal statement describing your interests, skills and experiences, and what motivates you to participate in this program. Then email them both to GSC.

3. Pay your $300 deposit. You may pay your deposit using a credit card by calling the GSC office at 503-954-1659.  Alternatively, you may pay your deposit by mailing a check, however; this will delay the application process.

Note: GSC refunds your deposit when you successfully complete your program and have submitted your project reports. The deposit is not refunded if you cancel your program.

What Happens Next?

GSC will begin processing your application when GSC receives your Application Form, resume, personal statement, and deposit. After GSC approves your application, you will receive an email with instructions about how to complete the application process. This email will have participant forms and instructions about how and when to submit them to GSC by the stated deadlines.
