During the upcoming February break from classes at the University of Manitoba, students are being given an additional choice for what to do, beyond studying or taking a vacation.
Students who choose to join the Alternative Reading Week team will visit four Winnipeg agencies to learn about social justice issues and the actions that can be taken locally to help build a stronger community.
The program will run from February 21 to 24, 2012. Each day will be spent at one of our four partner agencies: Winnipeg Harvest, United Way Winnipeg, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, and NEEDS (Newcomers Employment and Education Development Services).
Students will be guided through sessions to deepen their understanding of the experience, make parallels to their academic study and assist in their personal development.
This opportunity is proudly hosted by the University of Manitoba Students’ Union and the Student Life office.
All applications must be received by January 27, 2012.
