Welcome to the UVSS Peer Support Centre!
A safer space created to be an inclusive and comfortable space for students from all walks of life.
Whether you are struggling with or have questions regarding mental health, are concerned for a friend, or need help accessing resources on or off campus, you can seek a first-point-of-contact at the Peer Support Centre.
Our trained student volunteers are here to listen, offering non-judgmental, empathetic and confidential support while helping fellow students navigate next-step resources and student life at UVic.
Volunteer with us!
If you’re passionate about making a positive impact on the lives of others and want to be part of a supportive community, consider joining the Peer Support Centre as a volunteer. We welcome individuals who are dedicated to providing empathetic listening, guidance, and assistance to their peers.
To express your interest in volunteering, please fill out the form below. We accept applications on an ongoing basis, allowing you to join our team at any time throughout the year. However, please note that our annual training sessions are conducted in mid- to late-August, and currently, they are being held online.
