What is ucalgarycares?

The ucalgarycares programs are fantastic opportunities for UCalgary students to contribute to their local, national, and international communities through different service-learning projects with a social-justice lens. The ucalgarycares programs are offered as single Days of Service during Orientation Week and BSD, and immersion experiences during Reading Week and Spring/Summer term.

Regardless of your faculty, program, or year of study, ucalgarycares programs are great chance to meet new people and understand the nuances of some of the most complex social issues today.

Learn about the multitude of other service-learning programs made available to UCalgary students through Leadership and Student Engagement.
