For Volunteers

On this page volunteers and perspective volunteers will find lots of useful information and forms.

The vision of International Student Ministries Canada (ISMC) is  "Empowering International Students to Impact the World Through Jesus Christ"

God has brought thousands of students to London--they will be future leaders in business, education and government.  We have a great opportunity to help them succeed! The students are far from home and everything familiar; they struggle with English vocabulary and expressions; they need Canadian friends and family here.  

We have many opportunities for those willing to connect with international students. Please contact us for more information: leaders@internationalstudentslondon.org
* FOCUS Club (Friends with Overseas College & University Students) - Canadians provide a potluck dinner once a month at Stoney Creek Baptist Church.
* Friendship Partner - connect with a student monthly, have them over for dinner, talk and have fun together. 
* English Conversation Partner - there are many ESL students who need Canadians committed to spending time talking!
* Disciple making
* Leadership training


We suggest that you start by looking at the Friendship Partner Brochure - London which will give you an overview.  The next document that you may want to look at is the Guide for Canadian Friendship partners which will familiarize you with what being a friendship partner involves.   Then you may want to look at the Fp-Brochure-Students-London.pdf which will let you see what the students first introduction to the program is.  You can then look at the International Student Guide which will help you understand the expectations that we are communicating to Students.   We hope that you will then fill out a Volunteer Application Form so that we can begin the process of matching you up with a new friend.
