ONT 170 PZ -Social Change Partnerships


Institution: Pitzer

Description: ONT 170 is designed to involve students in local social change movements. The course acts as a preparatory class for students who wish to take the full Ontario Program in a later semester, as a post-class for those who have already taken the program, or as a class in which students can test the waters of local community engagement. The course requires between 5-7 hours per week in Ontario Program internships at Huerta del Valle community garden and food hub, the Wheelhouse Bicycle Coalition, Inland Congregations United for Change education/youth organizing, Warehouse Workers United labor organizing, Justice for Immigrants Coalition policy organizing, and Immigrant Youth Coalition youth organizing.
