York U Students raise money with regular bake sales
If you’re a Canadian student with a passion for global health equity, you’ve come to the right place. Student engagement is invaluable to the work of Partners In Health Canada. Chapters at campuses across Canada are working to raise awareness about PIH and global health equity while fundraising to support PIH clinical programs around the world. These student leaders are finding innovative ways to engage their campuses and communities in the global right to health movement.
We have student chapters at the following schools:
University of Toronto
University of British Columbia
Vancouver Island University
If you're a student at one of the above schools, and you're interested in getting involved, please send a note to Ian Pinnell at email@example.com to be connected with your local chapter.
Don't see your school on the list and interested in starting one? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to talk through the process with you.
It's important to remember that no one can do this work alone. If you’re interested in forming a PIH Canada group on campus, reach out to friends and classmates who share your values. Talk about why you're inspired to take on this challenge and then send us a note – we'd love to hear your stories. Unfortunately, we don’t have the capacity to support your activities with banners, t-shirts, or financial resources, but we'd be thrilled to offer feedback and suggestions and connect you with other students at some of the schools who have already started – their experience will be a tremendous help.

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
There are many ways high school students can get involved. Speak to your student council or a teacher about forming a Partners In Health Canada club at your school. Read Mountains Beyond Mountains, engage with us on Facebook or Twitter, and keep an eye out for social justice initiatives in your community.
