Students Meet Community Partners: Bringing the Social Economy to Life

On October 6, Dr. Caroline Hossein introduced her 4th year Business and Society students to their community partners for the school year at a meet and greet at the CEC supported by the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies.   This Experiential Education class places students in 5 community organizations that all are doing some kind of social enterprise within their organization.  Students will be assisting in projects that will further those organizational goals, and put their class work to the test. The CEC introduced two Jane and Finch organizations to participate, as well as provided a session to get students thinking about their role in a community setting.

Five Catalyst Grants Awarded

The CEC Advisory Committee is pleased to announce five recipient projects for the 2016-2017 CEC Catalyst Grant.  A total of $26,500 was awarded to projects which further our CEC core activities in Experiential Education, Access to Post-Secondary, and Community Based Research. This award is intended to jump start a great collaborative idea between a community and York partnership, expand our mutual learning, and help establish best practices for community-university partnerships.

Farewell

The CEC would like to bid farewell and express our thanks to Nathan Stern, who served as our first Community Projects Coordinator from 2015-2016.  Nathan worked with neighbourhood youth, community organizations and York colleagues to strengthen meaningful partnerships, develop relevant programming and enhance student learning opportunities. We wish Nathan all the best in his new role as Community Development Officer with the City of Toronto.
