This leadership stream emphasizes and encourages civic engagement within the Greater Toronto community and beyond to achieve educational, developmental and societal goals. Community Outreach workshops and sessions will encourage the development of a worldly point of view and help “burst the bubble” that surrounds us as university students.
By participating in the workshops, you will become part of a community dedicated to diversity and social change (keep checking here for information about available workshops). Be sure to also check out events throughout the year that feature key leaders in the field. An essential component of community outreach is having an active role within the community.
Experiential learning in the community focuses on enhancing the community within Innis, U of T and our surroundings. This will involve many community outreach initiatives, proposals and event coordination.
Past community outreach initiatives have included a Service Learning Exchange in collaboration with The University of Western Ontario, raising money for Family Housing at U of T, and donation drives. We strive to engage Innis students to help build the Innis community, the University community, and the broader Torontonian and Canadian communities.

Join us in decorating bags to be donated the Native Women Resource Center of Toronto.
The Native Women’s Resource Centre of Toronto (NWRCT) began when a dedicated group of Aboriginal women recognized the need for a gathering place in Toronto where Aboriginal women could share resources, support one another, and practice their traditional ways. Today, the Native Women’s Resource Centre of Toronto provides a safe and welcoming environment for all Aboriginal women and their children in the Greater Toronto Area.
This event is brought to you by the Equity and Outreach portfolio of the Innis College Student Society and Innis College’s Art Club.
Monday, Oct 2, 2017 from 6-7pm in the Innis Events Room
