At POLIS, we value and appreciate volunteerism for the relationships and mutual benefits that can emerge. Often our volunteers are part of a service-learning, internship or practicum program, such as the Social Justice Studies Program at UVic. If you are would like to volunteer or intern and have some relevant skills to contribute, please contact us and we would be pleased to discuss possibilities.
Anna Johnston, a former undergraduate student in the Geography and Writing Coop program at UVic, volunteered with POLIS in 2006. She honed her editorial skills in the production of two major proceedings, co-edited with Kelly Bannister:
- Community-based Research and the University of Victoria
- Culture, Heritage and Intellectual Property Rights: Opportunities and Challenges for Indigenous Communities
POLIS is involved in a variety of collaborations with non-profit groups, First Nations organizations, academic and administrative units on campus, and others. If you have a project or activity that fits with the POLIS mission and vision, contact us to discuss the potential for collaborating.
