Work with social organizations and learn about the diverse approaches that they are using to address social concerns within their communities.

Enhance your leadership skills

Want to enhance your leadership skills? ucalgarycares Global Citizenship is a co-curricular program where students develop their own unique leadership identities while making a difference. 

In May the group volunteers their time for a broad range of non-profit organizations. Examples of past activities include attending a smudging ceremony at Native Child and Family Services, learning about LGBTQ+ immigration issues at the Rainbow Railroad, receiving a climate change presentation at the Pembina Institute and sorting donations at the Parkdale Community Food Bank.
