Expanding the Partnership with Guelph Humber University

    For three years we have had the opportunity to work closely with Guelph Humber University, and their Justice Program. In our first year with GH, we took on 30 students for a course placement. These students came online as friendship and specialty mentors, each contributing a minimum of 100 hours of volunteer service! They also participated in our Pink Shirt Campaign and other community workshops. 

    Last year we had 50 students from GH do their placement. 49 were from the Justice Program, but this year we added a student from their Media Studies program - and she had to complete 240 hours! Not only was our online community vibrant and exciting with new content and lots of interactions with our members, but Kathy, our Media student, designed a new postcard for us, banners for the web site, social media posts, and designed the theme for our upcoming fall event. This internship was so successful we have asked to take on more students from the Media Program.

    For 2019 we accepted another 50 Justice Students as online mentors and added 4 media students! Check out our Blog, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages for their contributions.
