Thank you for your support.

Donate your Aeroplan Miles to help send uOttawa students to areas around the world where they can participate in meaningful community service. From Northern Canada to China, from Ghana to Guatemala, your Aeroplan Miles will help get them there.

Each day, we meet students who are exploring their options to volunteer in Canada or abroad, but travel costs can be a serious obstacle to applying for, or initiating, a project.

Your donation can provide students with the means to achieve their volunteer service goals and bring their community engagement dream to life.

All part-time and full-time uOttawa students are eligible and can apply on the Centre’s website. A selection committee will award Aeroplan Miles based on the amount available.

Check out our students’ community service projects under our News & Updates tab!
