Trent University has a longstanding tradition of service. From student- and alumni-based volunteer efforts to the highest levels of government office, the Trent community has risen to the challenge of bettering our world. The first Trent University Day of Service will be held on May 5, 2018, with the goal of bringing together Trent alumni and community members around the world to volunteer with organizations in their area. Trent University Alumni Day of Service will be a catalyst for ongoing volunteerism by Trent alumni, students, faculty and staff.

This year, we've selected an overarching theme of "Food" to help guide the planning of Day of Service. What does this mean? Almost anything, from collecting and sorting donations at a local foodbank, to serving a meal to those in need, to promoting food literacy.

Volunteer at a Service Site

In its inaugural year, there will be 3 Day of Service Sites with established local community partnerships: 

Oshawa/Durham Region, ON
• Peterborough, ON
• Vancouver, BC

Organize a Service Site

If you reside in an area that is currently not hosting a Day of Service Site, consider organizing one in your community. Trent University Alumni Affairs and the Trent University's Alumni Day of Service are eager to partner and provide support – no matter where you live. To organize a service site contact us at to get started.

Volunteer Independently

Unable to volunteer at, or organize a service site, but still want to get involved on Day of Service? You can still give back to your community and volunteer on this meaningful day as a representative of Trent University. Simply arrange to volunteer with an organization in your community, and identify that you are an independent volunteer when completing the Day of Service registration form.
