ACCE (Ambassadors for Campus & Community Engagement) Team Program

The ACCE Team Program is instrumental in promoting involvement and building community at McGill. This team of students encourage fellow students to get involved in the campus and/or Montreal community, as we know from research and experience that this helps develop students' leadership and life skills as well as enriches their academic career.  If you want to:

  • improve your facilitation, leadership, peer-coaching and communication skills,
  • challenge yourself to lead workshops and encourage fellow students to find involvement opportunities,
  • make a meaningful contribution to the McGill community and promote involvement to fellow students, then you should apply to be part of the ACCE Team!

APPLICATION PERIOD NOW CLOSED. If you are interested in applying to this program next year, click here to be notified!

The ACCE Team Program (Ambassadors for Campus & Community Engagement, formerly the Facilitator Training Program) is a great students-helping-students volunteer program, which gives 25 to 30 students an opportunity to build leadership capacities and life skills in relation to leading workshops, public speaking, peer-coaching and facilitation. The ACCE team is instrumental in promoting involvement. Successful candidates are trained on Saturday, March 21 and Sunday, March 22 and have the opportunity to give workshops starting at the end of March.

Each year, members of our ACCE team develop their leadership skills and sense of self-efficacy within a diverse cohort of like-minded peers through participative group activities, workshops, and more! They tell us about how their experiences have helped them to expand their horizons and gain valuable life skills, all while contributing to the enrichment of McGill’s student life. Our primary goals are to encourage more students to get involved in the campus and/or Montreal community as we know from research and experience that this helps develop one's leadership and life skills as well as enriches one's academic career. A great deal of learning goes on inside the classroom, and  there are also many opportunities for learning happening outside the classroom.
