The Language Centre - Conversation Partner

The Language Centre’s Conversation Partner Program pairs students from The Language Centre with volunteers from Saint Mary’s University and the extended community. The program offers the students the opportunity to meet native English speakers and practice their spoken English. The volunteers and students create their hours and meeting places, making it one of the most flexible (and fun) volunteer opportunities on campus. Not only do the students at The Language Centre love making new friends, but they love exploring the city and learning about new cultures. If you are interested in applying, please contact Ilaria ( or drop by The Language Centre Library, TR201, second floor of The Language Centre (960 Tower Road, beside the Arena).

Centre for Housing and Residence Life - Residence Student Volunteer Program (R.S.V.P.)

RSVP is a program that provides one-time volunteer opportunities for residence students. This means that you get the experience without a long-term commitment. This year we have partnered with numerous organizations from around Halifax including the Atlantic Film Festival, Adsum House for Women, and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. You could be doing anything from painting a deck for a women’s shelter to selling 50/50 tickets for a Mooseheads game.
