Bachelor of Commerce, SEM Major, 1st Year

Course: CSL 100 (Winter 2023) with Instructor Jay Friesen

Who was your community partner and can you describe the project objectives

I had the opportunity to run a social media campaign for the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association to help them expand their reach.

What was your biggest takeaway from your CSL placement? 

My CSL placement taught me about the barriers that nonprofit organizations face from to lack of funding and resources.

How can you apply any newly gained knowledge/skills to your future endeavours (courses/employment/volunteering)?

Not only did I develop applicable skills in content creation and social media management, I also learned how to effectively and empathetically communicate with a nonprofit organization.
