                                                                                                                                                            On Saturday, September 27th, the Centre for Community Partnerships will be organizing oUTreach. This is a day of community service to help connect students, staff, and faculty to the greater community. What originally started as a small group of U of T students determined to bring National Ghandi Day of Service to Canada, is now an annual event that spans across U of T’s three campuses and involves over 1000 participants. This year, a large variety of activities have been arranged with oUTreach community partners in the GTA, including tree-planting and environmental cleanups for a local watershed, nail painting for a women’s shelter, organizing a sports clinic at a local community centre, or updating the layout of an agency’s website. There is something of interest for everyone and plenty of opportunities where participants can utilize their skills and knowledge. Participants can use oUTreach as an opportunity to expose themselves to different social issues, meet other like-minded individuals, strengthen their social networks, or to simply have fun. Though it may only be for a day, indulge your civic-minded self and involve yourself in the community.
