Looking to get involved this year?
The combination of a weekly Trek placement with a non-profit organization or school, and our guided learning program can enable you to learn more about community issues, apply your academics in the real world, build lasting connections, and make a difference. There’s over 20 different placements to match your interests, schedule, and career goals!
· The UBC Learning Exchange facilitates computer drop in programs, ESL conversation talking circles, and other programs. They’re committed to sharing skills and building community.
· Hastings Kids First is a referral-based after-school program focused on supporting children’s academic and social emotional needs. The program provides a safe, structured environment for students to receive help with their school work and the opportunity to experience a range of healthy activities provided by caring adults.
Learn about our other placements on our website or by attending an information session on September 11 (1:00-2:30, SPPH B151), September 13 (5:00-6:30, ANGU 254) OR September 20 (5:00-6:30, ESB 2012), where you’ll meet with community partners.
