Get involved alongside local residents

Are you passionate about contributing close to home? At the Learning Exchange students get involved alongside local residents. It’s a powerful real-life learning experience—you can come away with practical skills and a better understanding of your strengths, and yourself. Students volunteer at 612 Main Street—in the heart of Vancouver.
