anniversary

It was a time to revisit with old friends and relive old memories as more than 100 current and former participants, volunteers and staff came on Nov. 17th to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Community on Campus.

The partnership between the University of Toronto Mississauga and Community Living Mississauga provides an opportunity for adults from 21 years of age to 30 to experience university life by participating in activities of their choice on campus at the University of Toronto Mississauga.

One staff coordinates the schedules and activities while one-to-one support is provided by volunteer students. Participants can spend up to a maximum of 16 hours per week on campus for a period of three years.
