How do you think you’d feel knowing that even before you graduated you had a direct impact on the health and wellness of an aboriginal community?
Pretty good, right?
We’ll here’s your chance.
Next May, Humber is organizing its first ever 14-day service-learning trip to Arviat, Nunavut.
Humber will take ten students to this Inuit village to help community leaders set up, manage and sustain after-school programs; literacy games and activities; and sports and recreation programs.
This experience will be life-changing, believes Sherri Branscombe, a professor at Humber’s Recreation and Leisure Services and Sport Management programs, and the trip’s lead organizer.
“I think it will absolutely change students’ careers paths and expose them to things we can’t expose them to in the classroom,” she said. “This will open up their eyes to what other people in the world need.”
