Students worked with the Mustard Seed, Calgary Urban Project (CUPS), Drop-In & Rehab Centre and St. Stephen’s Anglican Church. While working in smaller groups with these organizations students began to discuss the complexities of homelessness. They investigated their initial understanding of what it means to be homeless and realized that they had a fairly biased view on this issue. Through their investigation with these various agencies in Calgary, students gained a better understanding on the concept of what it means to be homeless.
They also worked with senior leadership at the Calgary Board of Education to gain a understanding in how various agencies work together to solve this issue. Once students collected the required data focusing on reflective personal responses they worked with Nureva Inc. to bring together a collaboration of their experience.
Working collaboratively with Nureva students brought their Campus Calgary 2School experience alive. This video elaborates this very unique and positive experience.
