Connect with emerging leaders

In a time of political and economic change, Ontario’s nonprofit sector is needed more than ever. As employers, new funding realities may make it more challenging to have the labour force needed to serve your mission and communities.

Working with emerging leaders through experiential learning partnerships like student placements, hackathons or community-based research projects can help nonprofits and their communities to thrive.

Join ONN and the Ontario Universities on June, 5th to discuss experiential learning opportunities and how to leverage them through a new online platform. Through this webinar you will:

  • Learn about experiential learning: what is it and how it can strengthen your nonprofit
  • Discover how to connect with emerging leaders across Ontario through the Propel Initiative
  • Receive HR, legal and funding resources for hiring students
  • Discuss best practices for recruiting, on-boarding and recognizing students during experiential learning opportunities and get access to free templates

Bring your questions to the webinar for our Q&A. You can also send your questions in advance by June 1 to admin@theonn.ca.

Presenter: Alastair Woods, Propel Initiative

Alastair Woods is a Senior Policy Analyst at Ontario Universities where he mainly focuses on experiential learning, skills development and training. Alastair has spent his career in Ontario’s post-secondary sector, taking on student leadership roles at his undergraduate students’ union before serving as Chairperson, and Government and Media Relations Coordinator for the Canadian Federation of Students-Ontario. Beginning in 2017, Alastair served as a Policy Advisor to two Ontario Cabinet Ministers, holding the files of skills development, training, post-secondary innovation, apprenticeship and digital government.

Alastair graduated from York University in 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in International Development Studies and Political Science, and is currently completing his Master of Design in Strategic Foresight and Innovation at OCAD University. Considering his job and school keeps him in his head, Alastair stays grounded by playing on a dodgeball league, getting out into nature and performing improv.

Ontario Universities

Ontario Universities, previously known as the Council of Ontario Universities provides a forum for Ontario’s universities to collaborate and advocate in support of their shared mission to the benefit and prosperity of students, communities and the province of Ontario.
