The October and February reading weeks are great times to travel, visit family and take a break. But they’re also a perfect time to get involved in the community. Make the most of your free time by getting involved in positive, sustainable local initiatives.

The goal of ASB is to achieve lasting, positive outcomes for uOttawa students and for local communities.  ASB allows students to build skills, meet new students, learn about, and take action on local development challenges.  At the same time, ASB increases community capacity to respond to local needs by linking up local and global organizations with uOttawa student volunteers.
