Help a community organization while having fun, making friends and gaining skills.

George & Helene Coward Endowment Fund

Community Compass is the evolution of a program formerly known as Alternative Spring Break (ASB). The ASB program received a generous donation at the bequest of the late Kenneth Coward, and had been named in honour of his parents Helene and George Coward. It is intended to facilitate access and encourage students to engage in critical thinking and personal reflection in order to enrich their academic experience and foster civic responsibility.


Completion of the Community Compass reading week program can be applied towards the completion of your Core Skill Modules in FutureBound. Community Compass is the equivalent of completing 4 activities (2 Leadership & Collaboration, 1 Communitication & Digital Capabilities, 1 Career Development).
