Soon, Concordia will have one central place for information about volunteerism. The Leadership, Initiative, and Volunteer Engagement (LIVE) Centre - a part of Counselling and Development - will open in H 608-1 and 608-2 by the end of May and will be fully functional before the fall semester starts.

"The centre will provide anyone interested in volunteering, as well as people who recruit volunteers a point of contact, a central place to connect and establish partnerships," says Valerie Millette, career advisor at Career and Placement Services, who will become the LIVE Centre Coordinator.

"As an extension of current Counselling and Development services, we'll be providing one-on-one and group advising to students looking for volunteer opportunities. And now we'll be able to go much further, bringing together students, staff and faculty and building bridges with the larger community" she says.
