Community on Campus
For over 20 years Community Living Mississauga and the University of Toronto Mississauga have worked together to provide a University experience for individuals from the community who have an intellectual disability. Community on Campus participants and UTM student volunteers participate in various social activities on campus and benefit from working together.
The in-person Community on Campus program for Fall 2020 is closed, to return when the participant and volunteer experience can resume after the Covid-19 pandemic. There may be virtual opportunities for UTM student volunteers with Community Living Mississauga in the meantime, which would be posed to the UTM Career Centre CLNx website. We look forward to the program's full return as soon as it is safe to do so.
