COMMUNITY INFORMATION GUELPH CELEBRATES I&R DAY
Every day thousands of people find the help they need quickly, conveniently and free of charge because of Information and Referral (I&R) services. To recognize the importance of I&R in our community, Community Information Guelph is taking part in I&R Day on November 16.
Information and Referral is the art, science and practice of bringing people and services together and is an integral component of the health and human services sector. People in search of critical services such as financial assistance, food, shelter, child care, jobs, or health services often do not know where to begin to get help, or they get overwhelmed trying to find what they need. With I&R, the information is available at their fingertips with one simple phone call, visit, or online database.
Community Information Guelph links people to services in Guelph and Wellington County.

This website is a new and exciting resource for high school students who are looking to get involved in social initiatives or earn community service hours for the 40 hour requirement for graduation.
The website is a 5-10-20 campaign, where students will be able to select volunteer opportunities based on how many hours they'd like to put in - 5 hours, 10 hours, or 20 hours. We've also created step-by-step guides for students who are interested in creating their own community service projects based on their interests, skills, and passions.
