The Student Life Centre strongly encourages you to connect with the London community through volunteering.

There are over 1,000 non-profit organizations in London who desperately need volunteers. Some organizations may not be able to operate without the help of volunteers. You are a vital part of their service delivery plan.

We have developed relationships with key organizations in London that we encourage our students to work with in a volunteer capacity. These organizations recruit volunteers to assist with not only their day-to-day operations, but also with the execution of their programs and services in the community.

If you are looking for current volunteer opportunities from partners specifically requesting Brescia students, please look here.
