Praxis: Service-Learning for Social Change

Join this interdisciplinary, student-led program to make friends, give back and apply your classroom learning! Last year, students worked organized Trick or Eat, collecting 1000 items of non-perishable foods for Winnipeg Harvest and raising awareness about food security, amongst many other projects  and activities on clean water, poverty, migration and more.
