2019-20 Social Innovation Project Registration

Develop your skills, create innovative real-life projects, and positively impact your community!

Local not-for-profit organizations are often faced with multiple resource challenges and competing needs that they need to prioritize. Functional needs come first, but many of these organizations may not always have the time, or financial resources to allocate to exploring new opportunities and innovative ideas that could potentially bring exciting initiatives to their operations. This is where you come in!

Social Innovation Projects pair a team of student volunteers with a community organization who have identified a challenge facing their organization. The team of UTM students will work together with the organization over a 16-week period to come up with an achievable solution for that problem. As a volunteer, you will be working on real-life projects to develop an attainable solution to help better your community.
