Become a Volunteer

Volunteer with the International Education office

There are many volunteer opportunities available to you at Durham College or in the region. Volunteering is an excellent way to give back to your campus or community, and can also help you gain valuable skills that will serve you well in your part-time job search.

If you are compassionate, patient, enthusiastic, outgoing or want to gain these skills, sign up to be part of the DC Crew here. On-campus volunteers help new students feel comfortable and welcomed into the DC family, share their experiences to help and direct new students, promote engagement by encouraging new international students to stay connected to the International Education office and foster a positive atmosphere by pumping up new students and being enthusiastic about activities.

Volunteer off-campus

Interested in volunteering off-campus? Before you engage in volunteer activities, it is your responsibility to review the meaning of work as per Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). This is because some volunteer work may be considered a type of work for which you are required to have a work permit. Therefore, it is your responsibility to always check and follow the regulations when planning to work as a volunteer.
