Bringing the Classroom to the Community
Campus Calgary Open Minds offers students hands-on learning that occurs beyond the four walls of a school. These one-week programs connect our students to experts and give students experiences that bring education to life.
This experience gives students a clearer idea of the role they play in the world around them. The program helps foster attitudes and understandings of cultural awareness, civic pride, community responsibility, and stewardship.
Once back in the classroom, students apply their understandings beyond their local setting to national and global communities.
Since its inception in 1993, Campus Calgary Open Minds has expanded to 14 sites including:
We appreciate all our partners, volunteers, and community members who help make these opportunities happen.
Annual contributions to this program from community and education is in excess of $1.4 million dollars.
We are always looking for program funding to further expand our program. Contact Jennifer Meredith (403-817-7583) for more information
