Please note that the Dinner with 12 Strangers event series is currently on-hold as part of a larger review of alumni programs and services. During this time, please explore the other volunteer opportunities available.
Invite U of T community members over for food and fun
Dinner with 12 Strangers – D12 – is one of our most popular and enjoyable programs. University of Toronto alumni, faculty, students or staff host a dinner in their home or another fun event - such as a hike, games night or trip to the museum - at another location of the host's choosing. The possibilities are boundless.
Help build a stronger more connected U of T community by volunteering to host! You'll meet interesting people and share fascinating conversation while enjoying a positive and memorable experience together.
What does hosting involve?
Welcoming guests into your home or at another location.
Covering the expenses of brunch, lunch or dinner, if you’re providing a meal.
Starting conversations and helping everyone to feel welcome.
The date, location, number of guests and theme of the activity are completely up to you.
What resources does U of T provide?
- We can promote the dinner to U of T community members and handle the guest list.
- We can provide guidance and advice to help everything run smoothly and ensure everyone has a good time.
- We can arrange a space at U of T or another venue, if you aren’t in a position to host the event in your home.
