The Cultural Connectors team is a fun and interactive volunteer opportunity for students who are looking to get involved, positively contribute to the campus community and become global leaders. As part of the team, you will gain valuable experience in student leadership, event management, facilitation and public speaking in a virtual global environment. All key skills for your personal resumes and LinkedIn profiles upon completion!
As a Cultural Connector, you will meet new people, network, work closely with Humber staff, have a website profile and collaborate in a team environment. The vision of the team is to create a stronger community through interactive and exciting events that are inclusive. The Cultural Connectors programming will have a lasting impact on not only Humber students and communities, but also students globally!
Your team will be planning and organizing 2 to 3 virtual cultural events in Winter 2021, aimed at the Humber community and beyond. We are looking for students to join on four different sub-committees.
1. Language Learning – 4 positions available
2. Culture-Stream – 4 positions available
3. Hobby Hangs – 4 positions available
4. Global Family Fun – 4 positions available
The 2020-2021 program runs from January - April 2021. As a participant of the Cultural Connector team there is approximately 2-4 hours of volunteer commitment each month. There will be guided sessions with Humber Global staff, like orientation and training, along with unguided work where sub-committees will need to work together to create and facilitate events.
Our commitment to you is to ensure that you have the resources you need to facilitate programming, such as teambuilding and guided facilitation, common platform for brainstorming and working with your sub-committees, communication modes for marketing materials and built-in intercultural training.
