Mapping is a great way to build community. Your community! And the Mapping Centre is a great place to volunteer your time and effort to keep communities on the path towards sustainability. You'll learn lots and take away skills and a network that you'll use long after you're done at UVic.
We have ~101 projects underway - all of them exciting! Please contact the Mapping Centre lead, Ken Josephson, to see how you can help out. It is easiest to contact Ken via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. You are also always welcome to stick your head into the Mapping Centre - Social Science & Mathematics Building B209.
