MONTHLY DINNERS

Once per month we host a dinner and games night at a local church close to McMaster University where students are welcome to meet and get to know other students and Canadian volunteers. Each dinner we play games, occasionally hear from guest speakers, and enjoy a delicious home-made meal. 

WEEKLY SPORTS NIGHT IS BACK!!

Sports in the Gym is every Tuesday evening from 7pm - 9pm!

You are invited to join in on a weekly fun night of playing basketball, football (soccer), badminton, and volleyball

Pleast note in the summer we will have sports in the park instead!

COMMUNITY OUTINGS

These events vary but provide an opportunity for students to explore parts of the city on short day trips with other students and volunteers while experiencing common Canadian past-times.

FRIENDSHIP FAMILIES

A couple of times each year students can sign up to join a Canadian family for a meal in their home during a traditional holiday. Students will experience what it is like to celebrate the holidays in Canada and get to know locals and other students.
