Community Restitution Opportunities Community Restitution Opportunities

The following list of Burlington agencies offers you a place to begin your community restitution experience. After reviewing the list, make a few introductory calls to investigate which site would be the best for you in terms of your interests, time availability, and the needs of the agency. If you already perform community service and/or would like to work at an agency not listed on this sheet, contact CSES at (802)656-4360. If you have more than 10 hours to complete, you may choose to work at several different agencies. In order for your community restitution to be considered complete, you must:
  1. Receive approval for your agency from the Community Restitution Coordinator.
  2. Have your agency fill out the Community Restitution Agreement/Verification and Performance Evaluation.
  3. Write a 750 word reflection paper based on the Community Restitution Reflection Paper Guidelines.
  4. Return paper and timesheet to Center for Student Ethics & Standards, 41 S. Prospect Street, Burlington, VT. 05405, or fax it at (802) 656-8191. Please indicate "Confidential c/o Community Restitution Coordinator" on the faxed document.
Please be sure that you keep any appointments you make to complete your service; failure to keep appointments may require you to select a different agency. Students have performed their hours at soup kitchens, national parks, elderly homes and after-school programs, among others.Be advised to begin your agency search as soon as possible in order to assure completion of your hours by the assigned deadline. You will need to call the Center for Student Ethics & Standards at least 10 days before your deadline if you are having trouble setting up community restitution hours. Please do not hesitate to call 802-656-4360 if you have any questions.
