Arts CARES 2015

Tue., Feb. 17, 2015 8:00 a.m. - Fri., Feb. 20, 2015 5:00 p.m.

Location: In various locations around Regina

Arts CARES is open to any Faculty of Arts student and any U of R student registered in a participating class. Those who volunteer provide 15 hours of service to a number of community-based organizations in Regina from February 17 to 20 (each morning and all day Wednesday). They are hosted at the same organization all week and can help with the organization's regular programs and services or work on a special project.

After the morning work, all students gather for lunch (provided free of charge) and participate in interactive workshops in the afternoons. These workshops are an opportunity for them to learn from other students, reflect upon their experiences, and explore how what they learned they could be applied to other areas of their lives.
