The Note Taking program ensures that students with disabilities are able to access lecture material, which they may otherwise not have access to.  Students who require the services of a note taker may have difficulties taking notes due to a physical disability, vision or hearing loss, mental health condition, chronic health disability, learning disability or ADD/ADHD.
 
 

Main Responsibilities:

 
Provide a copy of your notes to AccessAbility Services within 24 hours of each lecture.  Attend your classes regularly and take notes.
 

Benefits of Volunteering:

  • Contribute to the UTSC Peer Community
  • Receive official recognition on your Co-Curricular Record (CCR) if you are selected for 2 or more courses. For more information on this please contact notetaking@utsc.utoronto.ca

  • Count your volunteer hours towards SCSU’s Volunteer Network Program to be eligible for prizes and awards (scsu.ca/vnp)
  • Past volunteers often say that being a Note Taker motivates them to attend class, be more attentive, participate in class discussions and take comprehensive notes, which works to benefit both the Note Taker and the student(s) requiring the notes.
