ucalgarycares Reading Week

Our ucalgarycares participants are so excited for their service-learning programs happening in Calgary, Toronto, and New Orleans this Reading Week! We have students staying at the Mustard Seed in Calgary for the ucalgarycares Homelessness at Home program which explores ideas such as homelessness, poverty, and mental health. Another group of students will be exploring sustainability in Calgary through our ucalgarycares Sustainable Cities program. Our brand new ucalgarycares Global Citizenship program targeted towards first year students is taking place in Toronto, where participants will explore what it means to be an active citizen in the community.  Finally, our students will be returning to New Orleans this Reading Week for our ucalgarycares Building Healthy Communities to explore the effects of Hurricane Katrina and ideas of race, gender, education, and health. Keep up with our participants as they share their experiences and views on social justice issues through our blog!
