Internships for Tomorrow's Changemakers

Group of students working together

Students pursuing the B.A.(Education); Major in Education in Global Contexts engage in a program that positions educators as social changemakers and problem-solvers. These Education undergrads apply their learning to a summer internship after their second year of studies, opting to work in various business/non-profit sectors, and organizations, in locations in Quebec or around the world. Students search for and secure their internship placements, but many of these opportunities may be unpaid or require travel, creating financial barriers that can limit student access. The funds raised on McGill24 will directly support these B.A. students by providing stipends covering expenses such as travel, accommodation, and living costs during their internships, enabling them to focus on their learning and professional development without the stress of financial constraints.

Crowdfunding Goal: $2,000

Grow McGill Education’s Community Garden

Students work on Education's Community Garden

McGill’s Education Community Garden, a two-level greenspace tucked next to the Education Building on Peel Street, provides an outdoor learning space to teach sustainable development and ecological literacy. Students, staff members, and others benefit from hands-on learning that promotes good health through nutrition, the influence and impact of nature, and the well-being that comes from urban gardening.

A greenspace for gathering in the community to teach and learn together, funding is needed to grow and maintain the garden infrastructure, supplies to host events and workshops for the McGill community, and invited learners on such topics as eco-art, land-based pedagogy, permaculture, and nutrition.

Crowdfunding Goal: $500
