Do you want to learn more about the work of community organizations in Winnipeg? Are you curious about volunteering in the community but not sure how to get started?

UM Community Volunteers is an introductory experience for students looking for opportunities to engage with local community organizations in a safe, supportive and manageable way. Through locally run projects, participants will have community-level connections and experience meaningful discussions, while being mentorship leaders.

UM Community Volunteers will:

  • Gain confidence, experience, and skills to engage with community.
  • Build relationships with local community organizations.
  • Make connections with like-minded UM students.
  • Receive a volunteer notation on their Co-Curricular Record
