The Catalyst Grants are one of the ways that the York-TD Community Engagement Centre (CEC) is working to deepen University-Community partnerships in Jane Finch. These grants awarded $25,000 among 5 partnership projects that include projects promoting access to post-secondary education, supporting community-based research and creating experiential education opportunities for students. An Advisory committee composed of community stakeholders, York University Vice Provost and faculty are among the decision makers of grant recipients.
a. Fosters academic innovation in teaching and learning through community engaged pedagogy and experiential education opportunities
The Community Engagement Catalyst Grant is designed to support a project that involves at least one community (Black Creek) partner working together with one York University partner. Partnership, for purposes of this grant, is expected to be more developed than just signing off in support of the grant. It should involve shared planning, implementation and reporting of the project.
