Teams have participated in urban outreaches to people living in poverty and experiencing homelessness, packed food for the hungry at food banks, and cleaned up green spaces to beautify neighbourhoods. There has been participation in cultural exchange with local youth and residents, and work in local schools with students of various ages.
