Community Action Projects

Community Action Projects at the University of Toronto Scarborough connect students to one and/or two term engagement opportunities within the Scarborough community.

Participating in a Community Action Project is a great way for UTSC students to learn, apply academic learning, take action for social change, and develop both professionally and personally, while being an active participant in the community and society.

For 2019-2020, we are collaborating with a number of organizations that involve UTSC students tutoring and mentoring youth after school on weekends - including East Scarborough Boys and Girls Club, Frontier College, Visions of Science, and TAIBU Community Health Centre.
