ICan Crew and BVC Cares

  • ICan Crew and BVC Cares

The following blog post was written by Kelty Christensen, Learner Engagement Officer at the Centre for Excellence in Immigrant and Intercultural Advancement.

Community engagement is a key element of the Intercultural Centre's ICan Volunteer Crew. That is why we are so excited to be part of BVC Cares, a new BVC initiative.  

Bow Valley College cares about our local community and this initiative encourages students to volunteer in the community and support non-profit organizations.  To promote this initiative, the Intercultural Centre has partnered with several different BVC departments to pool our volunteer resources in an effort to contribute to the success of this initiative.
