We are looking for several types of volunteers and you can choose which is right for you:
- Support Staff: This is the best option for people who are naturally introverted and enjoy working behind the scenes. You will be assigned administrative and logistical tasks as well as supporting Volunteers and Senior Leaders in events and booths.
- Welcome Week Event Hosts: This is the best option for passionate, energetic, and outgoing people who are not afraid of starting conversations and relating with new students. This is right for you if you are organized and well aware of your campus. Don’t worry, training is provided.
- Residence Volunteers: This is a new category where we are looking for Volunteers to help with Residence programming for the full period of Orientation. This includes helping with both passive and active activities and events. This is a great way to meet others who live in Residence. You can also participate in non-Residence events to bulk up on Volunteer hours.
