In Canada today, it is estimated a little over 75,000 people are living with HIV and AIDS. With the number of cases still increasing, it is unfortunate that in our society today this disease does not seem very prevalent. The Student AIDS Association is a group of students passionate about HIV and AIDs and as a club we will collaborate together to help eradicate stigmas placed on HIV and AIDS by raising awareness and knowledge about the disease as well as raise money for the Canadian AIDS Society, an organization that uses their funds to promote education and awareness, mobilize communities, advocate at the federal public policy level and provide information and resources for HIV and AIDS.
The Youth Project is a group dedicated to promoting education and wellbeing in the community. We provide the youth less fortunate with an opportunity to receive help with school work, as well as study and organization tips. We also collect monetary and other donations that we can use to enrich their lives in other ways. Everyone deserves to have a good education and quality of life, and The Youth Project at UOIT and Durham College helps this become a reality for those in unique circumstances.
WUSC is a group of dedicated students striving to raise awareness and educate our fellow students about the Refugee Crisis and what we can do to help.

Focusing on the Student Refugee Program, and others initiatives such as ShineALight, Bike for Aids and WUSC in general we hope our campus can impact the lives of those around the world.
