"Doing Good in Communities' is an experiential First Year Seminar course at the University of Guelph that challenges students to think beyond volunteering and charity as the means to have a positive impact in our communities. Over the course of the W18 semester, interdisciplinary teams of students address specific challenges identified by community-partners (OurEnergyGuelph, UofG Sustainability Week and Victor Davis Memorial Court Non-Profit Homes) using tools and techniques from lean business models and social enterprise startups. Student groups will be pitching their ideas in an elevator-pitch style format to our community partners and a public audience.
