gryphons volunteer!

Volunteering is a big part of the University of Guelph experience. We have one of the highest percentages of students who contribute their time to the community in North America. And there are many opportunities right here in residence for you to get involved.

If you enjoyed volunteering in the past, we are here to help you continue those passions. If volunteering is something you haven’t tried there are many opportunities that don’t require any experience.
