Community Volunteer Circles

A network of weekly volunteering groups for students:

  • 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 20-30 min. at the end of your service experience.
