Practicing your French: by volunteering

WHERE: The LIVE Centre is a service which helps Concordia students connect with volunteer opportunities.

WHEN: Drop in at the Volunteer Resource Centre at SGW H-608-1 during our office hours . A Volunteer Ambassador will be there to discuss opportunities that will help you meet your goals.
