We are proud to say that every year, around the world, hundreds of our alumni support the students of Queen’s by generously giving their time and sharing their expertise.  We are delighted and very grateful for the amazing contribution that our alumni volunteers make globally.

Why Volunteer?

Volunteering is a way for you to give back to Queen’s. It can help you:

  • Stay connected to the University
  • Make a difference to students
  • Gain new skills and experiences
  • Broaden your professional and personal networks
  • Access a global alumni community that could help develop your career
  • Identify future talent

Whether you have an hour a week to spare or just one day a year, we may have an opportunity which works for you.

It is not volunteering in the classic sense, where I was giving up my time as someone who wanted to give back. I enjoy it and I absolutely love being involved.
