The Social Impact Lab (SIL) is a hands-on learning platform that fosters community-engaged learning through collaboration between students and community members on social and climate justice issues.
It provides a means for students to challenge pre-existing systems with community-led solutions, by identifying root causes of social and environmental issues that are important to communities. Students undertake a learning journey from awareness and understanding of social and climate justice issues, to analysis and real-time action.
SIL provides low-barrier opportunities to get involved with issues you are passionate about. All of our programming is free, and no prior experience or knowledge is required.
By participating in Social Impact Lab workshops and events, you will:
- Network with other passionate students and community organizations.
- Develop new career skills through experiential learning opportunities.
- Collaborate with and learn from a diverse range of people and organizations.
- Develop ideas and solutions through actionable projects that tackle social and environmental issues.
