VOLUNTEER IN THE COMMUNITY!
If you are interested in making a difference in the community, this is the website for you!
Sign in and learn about the many volunteer opportunities available to Laurier staff, students and faculty. If you aren't sure what you would like to do, or how to have the greatest impact, please contact a CSL coordinator.
When contacting the organizations to inquire about volunteer opportunities, please let them know that you are from Laurier, but that you are NOT a Laurier Community Service-Learning (CSL) student (many of these organizations receive Laurier students for CSL placements).
