A week for BCom students, faculty, staff and alumni to come together and volunteer in the Vancouver Community.

Plant trees in Pacific Spirit Park, help BC Children’s Hospital with administrative tasks, assist members of the Downtown Eastside community with job interview prep and/or clean up a local beach. With 11 different short-term projects to choose from, there's opportunities for everyone in the UBC Sauder community to meet new people, have fun, and give back!

We believe that business is a tool for positive social change. By partnering with these local organizations we can begin to explore ways to apply business skills to tackle today’s social issues.
