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 2-3 virtual cultural events throughout the 2021-2022 academic year, aimed at the Humber community and beyond. We are looking for students to join on four different sub-committees.

The 2021-2022 program runs from September 2021 - April 2022. As a participant of the Cultural Connector team there is approximately 2-4 hours of volunteer commitment each month.

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.
