Are you interested in gaining skills that you cannot get in a lecture? Are you looking to explore new and exciting leadership opportunities within Innis College? If your answer is “YES”, then Innis’ Leadership Committee is the right place for you. Some of you may have heard of our Leadership series entitled: In2U. For those of you who have not heard of it, get ready for something great! In2U offers three core workshops over the course of the academic year.
The first session is called In2U: Pathways to Leadership and is intended for those looking to gain, brush-up or polish-up on their leadership skills. Our second workshop is called In2U: Students in Leadership and aims to help students achieve their leadership potential within and external to the College. The third and final component is called In2U: Transition to Leadership where newly elected, appointed, volunteered or hired student leaders have the opportunity to meet and learn from current student leaders. In addition to these three workshops, students will also have the opportunity to practice many of their newly-learned skills through a series of networking seminars known as Back-Pack to Briefcase (B2B), hosted by the Innis Alumni Office.
If you’ve always wondered how to affect change in your community, how great ideas are generated, and how big decisions are made, this five-session workshop will help you explore these questions and more!
Join students from UTM, UTSC and UTSG to connect with others and learn about community advocacy, social enterprise and social change by visiting community partners throughout the GTA.
There are five sessions in total, each taking place on Wednesdays from 3pm to 5pm through the Winter term. Locations include sites of social enterprise, community-based organizations, and civic institutions.
If you’re interested, you can get all of the additional information on their website.
