“The Nonprofit/Voluntary Organizations: Cornerstones of Society course (IDS 290AA) opened my eyes to this enormous sector which is essentially invisible even though it plays such a significant role in so many aspects of our lives. I enjoyed taking this course for the diverse group of students it brought together. Each of us came from different educational backgrounds and faculties which led to a more enriching learning environment for everyone. This course highlighted numerous career opportunities in which I have further explored as I aim to find employment in the sector upon graduation.” -- Angela Tremka (U of R Kinesiology)
“I was a 4th year university student who had no idea what I wanted to do when I graduated. In my second last semester, I took a class focused solely on the voluntary sector, which showed me a whole new area to focus my career. A few months later I applied for a full-time job with a voluntary organization. I am now in my last semester of university with a guaranteed full-time position in the voluntary sector, a job I wouldn’t have without first being exposed to the sector through IDS courses at Luther College.” -- Hanna Karman (U of R English)
“The Nonprofit/Voluntary Organizations: Cornerstones of Society class provided me with a deeper understanding of the non-profit sector and the vital role it plays in our Canadian society. This course gave me the tools I needed to be able to effectively identify and understand the myriad different needs that the thousands of non-profit and volunteer organizations fill in our country. I gained a deeper insight into the need to support this sector and to elevate its visibility within my community.”-- Dan Woynarski (U of R Religious Studies)
“When I finish my social work degree, a majority of job opportunities will be in the nonprofit sector. Because of this class I have a more in-depth understanding of what that actually means. Out of all of the classes I've taken at the university, I found this class to be one of the most relevant and beneficial to real life experiences. I will use everything that I learned in this class in the future and I would recommend this course to everyone." -- Ashley Elgert (U of R Social Work)
“Taking a non-profit and voluntary sector course has given me the tools, and practical application for life and work outside of the class. I was already involved in a lot of organizations, but lacked the background and structure regarding the way they function. I can now take what I have learned, and be a more valuable member of my organization. This class has enhanced my love for the sector, and guided me even more so towards my future career.” -- Maria Aman (U of R Psychology)
