Voluntary Tuition Programme-2015 McJannet Prize

15 May 2015

St. Andrew's Resource Centre is delighted to confirm that the Voluntary Tuition Programme (VTP) has been given an honourable mention in the 2015 McJannet Prize. 

The MacJannet Prize was established by the Talloires Network and the MacJannet Foundation to recognize exceptional student community engagement initiatives at Talloires Network member universities and contributes financially to their ongoing public service efforts. The MacJannet Prize was established in order to:

  • Recognize and encourage exceptional student community engagement and community service
  • Financially support the ongoing work of university-based civic initiatives
  • Elevate innovative civic engagement program models and disseminate them throughout the Network as examples of promising practices
  • Strengthen public support for the global civic engagement movement in higher education
  • Champion the values and extend the legacy of Donald and Charlotte MacJannet, who devoted their lives to fostering international understanding
  • Promote action around the principles of the Talloires Declaration, which recommends steps to elevate the civic engagement of universities around the world

This is a prestigious award and reflects the hard work that has been invested by both the Adult Education Department, the students of Trinity College, and the wider local community. 


Well done to all involved!
