How do I apply to the General Student Program?
Please note the Westwood student program is full and will re-open in August 2023.
All students must first sign up for a mandatory Information Session. Applications will be sent via email only to those who attend the Information Session. Volunteer selection occurs after the Information Session. Once accepted you will be required to submit paperwork and medical requirements. Once everything is completed, you must attend a Student Orientation.
