Sign up to Volunteer with International Students

International students who are without family or support in the city are lonely and vulnerable in a global pandemic. Many have had their circumstances flipped on them, resulting in lost internships, reduced support from home,

and isolation from their normal support systems.


As a volunteer, you will support International Students through practical, spiritual and social engagement, and create a community and family for them here in Canada.

Our programs are run by volunteers who donate their time and resources.

Would you consider volunteering in one of our programs?
