Volunteering Opportunities


LEADER is a student-driven overseas economic development program. It was founded in 1991 by MBA students from the Ivey Business School with the mandate of empowering promising entrepreneurs in frontier markets to envision, launch, and/or scale new ventures. Through this approach LEADER aims to enable high-potential individuals to develop local business solutions that create opportunities for their communities. 

Speak at Ivey

Students at Ivey are encouraged to challenge assumptions and incite innovation, whether by our world-class faculty, by staff, by their peers in clubs and events, or by our very own Ivey alumni. Each year, we depend on generous alumni like you to pay it forward as keynote speakers, case competition judges, panelists, company representatives, and more. You help fuel the minds of our students – the industry leaders of tomorrow.

Mentor Circle Program

The Mentor Circle Program is a project of the Ivey Alumni Network (IAN) currently offered in Canada, California, the Tri-state area, EMEA and APAC regions. It is a volunteer-driven mentorship and peer-to-peer program that allows the IAN to promote continuous professional and personal enrichment by connecting alumni with each other. The Circles provide access to broader perspectives and insights from fellow alumni and are meant to drive rich learning and development experiences for all participants.
