Volunteer with the ISSO for 2019-2020

The International Student Services Office (ISSO) offers a wide range of opportunities for student volunteers to get involved and take on leadership roles throughout the academic year.

Comments from our 2018-19 Volunteers: 

I had the chance…to understand different cultural dimensions and adapt to them.  I learned how to help students understand that it’s possible to integrate their culture and values with the Canadian ones… It’s a chance to make a direct impact in people’s lives…to provide a sense of community…  Mariana Q.

I had a great time and would happily recommend it to anyone who’s looking to volunteer… learned the skill of communicating with people who are very different from me.  I had opportunities to make friends and get to know some interesting people. Liya A.
