Corporate Social Responsibility at Greystone College
Our goal is to positively contribute to the sustainable growth and development of people and communities, at the school, locally and around the world.
Greystone College is part of the ILSC Education Group, and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an important part of who we are as a company. ILSC was founded and developed on the principles of Humanism. CSR in its full breadth and depth is, at its core, the embodiment of Humanism as practiced by the business community. As facilitators of a global classroom, we strive to be unbiased, compassionate role models. As learners ourselves, we are constantly thinking about and adopting new strategies for building a better future.
We believe that Greystone College, as an educational institution for international and domestic students, has many opportunities to be an agent of positive change.
Fundraising and Awareness-raising
Greystone College is involved in various initiatives throughout the year to help raise awareness, money and goods for both local and global causes.
Locally, Greystone Vancouver raises money and accepts donations of clothing and food for Covenant House, a local organization that provides shelter and services to street involved youth.
Globally, Greystone has fundraised for Room to Read, an organization that focusses on increasing literacy and gender equality in education around the world. Greystone is also currently looking at establishing ongoing cooperation with Room to Read through their Graduate to Graduate program.
Greystone also supports the Learn to Earn Program at the Greystone College / ILSC New Delhi school. Learn to Earn is an educational sponsorship program that provides language and job skills training to disadvantaged young women and girls in India. Participants in this life changing program leave with skills that open up new opportunities for them.
Environmental Policy and Green Team
Greystone College is heavily involved in ILSC’s Green Team and is working to reduce waste around the school through recycling and composting initiatives. Greystone also participates in environmental awareness raising activities during Earth Month.
