Community Volunteer Action

Sign Up for a Volunteer Group

A network of weekly volunteering groups, where you:

  • Serve with other McMaster students at placements across Hamilton
  • Learn about and help address inner-city issues
  • Discuss your volunteer experiences
  • Make a significant difference where it is needed
  • Gain valuable experience

Each week your group facilitator helps you find your way to the placement and also facilitates discussion of your volunteer experiences for 15 min. at the end of your service experience.

How Do I Get Involved?
