“McIntosh Gallery has many different opportunities for volunteers to get involved, meet interesting people, and learn more about art and gallery practices. Volunteer positions can be tailored to fit your interest in visitor services, special events, archives or curatorial research.”
“Western is our community – our home. Whether this is your first year or your last, take the opportunity to open your mind to the possibilities this school holds for you. Your University Students’ Council plays a big role in creating those possibilities. USC Coordinators and their Committee Members are valued volunteers.

Learning it Together (LiT) is a dynamic, volunteer-driven health promotion program that aims to improve early literacy, numeracy, and healthy living skills through mentorship and role modeling. LiT pairs a university age mentor with a London elementary school student of lower socio-economic status in grades one or two and guides them through a unique eight-week after school program. LiT is entirely designed and implemented by students from Western University, and offers students the chance to make a positive impact on the life of a London child while gaining practical experience in a health promotion program.
Purple Bikes is a non-profit cycling co-operative on campus where anyone and everyone can access affordable DIY repairs, bicycle rentals, advice, and training. Volunteers are needed to help other members with repairs as well as helping maintain the rental fleet. Training is provided if you have no prior experience!
