On Tuesday, October 11, 2016, spend one day of your midterm break making a difference. Start having conversations in your community. Register for Make Midterm Matter!
Make Midterm Matter takes place each semester at Memorial University. Students spend one day of midterm break volunteering, learning, and engaging at designated community organizations. For the Fall Term the theme is "community conversations." We will be listening, and learning while volunteering, at Pippy Park, at the Gathering Place, at Bridges to Hope, in the MUN Botanical Garden, at the Elaine Dobbin Centre for Autism, at the Johnson GeoCentre, at the Refugee and Immigrant Advisory Council, the Association for New Canadians, at Memorial University's Community Garden, and at the Suncor Fluvarium.
At each location you can expect to communicate and problem-solve in small teams, have conversations with the staff and clients of each organization,and learn how you might help meet certain needs and challenges while assisting them with their operations. You will learn how to be active participants in community conversations.
PLEASE SELECT ONLY ONE LOCATION TO VOLUNTEER.
