This report describes a twelve week internship at The Centre for Career Development at Memorial University of Newfoundland. The following chapters will describe the goals and objectives of the internship, relate the measures that were taken to achieve the desired outcomes and describe a qualitative research study on the current Student Work and Service Program (Memorial University component). Chapter One provides an overview of activities that provided the intern with valuable insight into the field of career development. The remaining chapters explore low-income student parents' experiences on post secondary campuses with Chapter Two highlighting current literature on this student population, as well as a history of the Student Work and Service Program and how it has evolved to its current condition. Chapter Three describes a qualitative research study on the Student Work and Service Program (SWASP) that was conducted by the intern. This research explored the feelings of seven participants in SWASP and attempted to determine if it was achieving its original goals and objectives. Finally, Chapter Four provides a conclusion on the topic, as well as recommendations for the program and further research.
