Campus Friends is an initiative that offers post-secondary experiences on the University of Guelph campus to adults with varying developmental and physical needs.

A partnership between Community Living Guelph Wellington and U of G’s Experiential Learning Hub, this program has run on campus since 2016. Twelve participants take part each year, along with more than 20 mentors.

Typically, students attend Campus Friends one day per week during the year for up to three years. They take part in activities including academic and learning opportunities, volunteering, athletics and special events.

“Sounds Like Us” draws upon IICSI’s 12+ years of co-running “Play Who You Are” workshops with KidsAbility that have offered all participantsfrom new musicians to the very experienced; from music afficionados and scholars to first-time listenersrevelations about the links between music and community-making, improvisation and individual/community well-being, sound and self-expression.
