For students

Another great way to volunteer is at the MAA’s annual Send-Offs for students. Held every summer in cities around the world, including in Montreal, these events let incoming McGill students meet other people from their area and ask questions before they start at the University. Student volunteers are always in attendance to share their experiences. Learn more >>
