Volunteer Initiatives

Michaëlle-Jean Centre for Global and Community Engagement

Offering a variety of local and international volunteering opportunities, the Michaëlle-Jean Centre for Global and Community Engagement also offers Community Engagement Scholarships and runs contests and awards throughout the year.

Moreover, the Centre makes it possible for students who have completed a minimum amount of approved volunteer hours to receive a Co-Curricular Record (CCR). The Co-Curricular Record is an official university document that records approved and verified volunteer activities undertaken by students.
