SalvAide Project – Perth Campus

 

Algonquin College SalvAide Project

At the Perth Campus our students are taught that we must look at things from a local and global perspective.  Our Social Service Worker students do field placements in our local rural communities around Perth and in Ottawa and Kingston.  We raise money for the United Way and Big Brothers Big Sisters each year.  Our global commitment has been to rural people in El Salvador through our Algonquin College SalvAide Project done in partnership with the Ottawa based non- governmental organization SalvAide.  Part of this project involves a student delegation to El Salvador during break week and the following week.  The delegation works with youth, seniors, women, and war injured/war amputees.
