Post Graduate Service Programming
Join the thousands of other BC grads who have chosen a year or more of service after graduation. The Volunteer and Service Learning Center can help you find the program that is right for you. Whether you are looking for domestic or international, short-term or long-term, community-based or individual, or just at the beginning stages of your search, we are here to talk through your options. In addition, we offer a number of programs throughout the year to help you decide if post graduate service is right for you and give you the chance to encounter program recruiters and former volunteers. We look forward to seeing you.
