Volunteering is an excellent way to gain the skills and experiences you need to reach your career goals. Additionally, you can make a difference locally and globally by volunteering for a cause you believe in. The 2022 Volunteer Expo has already taken place but there are still lots of volunteer opportunities available! You can click here to see a list of organizations that recruit Trent students for volunteer opportunities, and be sure to connect with the organizations listed below or to check out the Student Experience Portal for opportunities.
Organizations from several sectors will be taking part in this event.
The Volunteer Expo is an in-person event where students can access information and have discussions with volunteer organizations, it runs every fall and is open for all students to attend!
