|Volunteering programme for spouses/international partners||
Volunteering is a great way to meet people, become familiar with the community and develop skills to include on a resume.
Volunteer opportunities offered to international partners help spouses connect and feel welcome as international students and scholars embark on a new life in another country. Such opportunities foster the level of satisfaction, social integration and wellbeing of international students and staff and their family members.

Social events accompanying the welcome event are an important way of establishing social and professional networks.
