Volunteers are a vital and integral part of QUIC activities. The Centre works with more than 100 volunteers each year. Most of QUIC volunteers are Queen’s University students. Why should you volunteer?
- Share your knowledge and experiences with others
- Meet new people; form new friendships
- Get involved with the Queen’s community
- Develop new skills and improve old ones
- Access Intercultural Training
- Have fun!
QUIC English Conversation Program volunteers commit 1-2 hours of their time per week, matched with two international students wishing to practice English conversation with a peer. Volunteers can also help in the weekly Conversation Group. All meetings take place on Campus.
The World Link Program at Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC) is an intercultural program that promotes learning, sharing, acceptance, and celebration of diverse cultures within the Queen’s community. The program delivers intercultural learning and exchange through sessions and social activities at QUIC.
