Another way for students to get involved at the Arboretum is to apply to take part in a Learning by Leading™ opportunity. Developed by the University of California at Davis Arboretum and Public Garden, the Learning by Leading™ Program is based on the idea that students learn best by taking leadership in helping to solve real-world problems. Learning by Leading™ at the Humber Arboretum provides a growing number of experiential and service learning opportunities for Humber College and University of Guelph-Humber students that will develop some of the same skills as working at the Arb, and is a great way to explore your related interests in a fun and supportive environment.
Any students can take part in the one-semester LxL introduction. Those who complete the first level will have the opportunity to get involved with community outreach, creative communication, or hands-on stewardship.
