Dental Outreach: Filling Local Needs

McGill’s Dental Outreach Program offers free dental care to those with financial hardships, physical and mental disabilities, as well as lack of insurance. It has been providing free dental care within the Montreal community for 16 years, and with your help, we will be able to continue to help individuals with the adversities mentioned above. After having volunteered for Outreach, we were able to understand that these individuals represent a large portion of the population, and that McGill dental students work hard to make their dental visit pleasant, allowing them to leave with smiles on their faces. Our Seeds of Change crowd-funding campaign will help maintain Outreach’s optimal standard of care for patients and, as previously mentioned, help treat more patients since dental care is not universally provided.

Social Economy Impact Internship: Pairing Incredible Students with Social-Purpose Organizations

The Social Economy Initiative Impact Internship Program offered me a wealth of experience and opportunity unparalleled in other programs or work environments. As the intern working for Artistri Sud, a non-profit that teaches women entrepreneurs the skills they need to create sustainable micro-enterprises, my original mandate was three-fold: 1) Assess their needs and conduct research for a business plan, 2) Develop said business plan, 3) Review existing organizational strategies and processes.

You planted the seeds, now see how they’ve grown!

During the summer we were proud to launch McGill’s first crowdfunding platform, Seeds of Change, to graduating students like yourself.

Thank you so much for your support. But that was just a warm up… the site is going live to a much wider audience in mid-September, so stay tuned!
