UBC’s Learning Exchange allows individual students to do community learning placements either over the span of a semester or in short-duration projects in various community settings. This service learning provides a volunteer force to contribute to the fulfillment of the goals of local community organizations. It also allows students to engage with new service communities, learning about local issues while encouraging students to apply their academic training to local issues.

The UBC-Community Learning Initiative seeks to engage students, faculty, staff, and communities in building their capacity to collaborate toward the resolution of complex community-based challenges.
