Doing Good in Communities

"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.

The purpose of the report is to engage community conversations, so that as a collaborative group of social, health and community services we can navigate together where we want to be in 5, 10 and 25 years.
