Mission Statement

Our goal is to assist Bachelor of Child Studies students in their educational experience and encourage growth individually and professionally through a variety of opportunities. We are committed to supporting our student body and creating a sense of community.


In the past, the Student Society has hosted and been involved in PD opportunities like:
- SafeTalk
- ASIST training
- First Aid
- Mental Health First Aid,
- Drug and Gang Information Seminar

We also seek to be committed to events that can involve the wider student-body, like our semi-annual student nights, and our annual events which are open to the participation of any students, as well as various community agencies, including:
- signing Christmas cards for youth in the Calgary Young Offenders Centre
- Blessing Bags for community partners serving vulnerable or at-risk populations
- National Child Day promotion with the Office of the Child and Youth Advocate

Please reach out if you have questions or would like to know how you can support us.
