Learning in Community Service, CITC02 is a third-year community service learning undergraduate course in the City Studies program, Department of Human Geography, at the University of Toronto Scarborough. The course is taught at the East Scarborough Storefront, a community hub that is located in the Kingston-Galloway/Orton Park (KGO) neighbourhood in eastern Scarborough. Residents in the neighbourhood face challenges related to poverty, insufficient community and transit infrastructure, and higher than average unemployment levels. KGO is also a thriving and diverse neighbourhood with vital social service and community-based programs for residents. The course is formed by the creation and maintenance of meaningful and sustainable associations with placement organizations/community partners. Since 2009, students have been placed with 21 different organizations and programs working in or with the KGO neighbourhood. The thematic focus of the course is community-based development and planning with a service learning placement component for students of four hours per week over an eight-week period, reflective assignments and an end-of-term ‘mini-conference’ that brings students and community partners together.
