Volunteer Opportunities at SDC
|1. Volunteers In Progress|
Over 100 students each year volunteer with SDC's Volunteers In Progress. This program provides students with career-related experience, an opportunity to explore career interests, and the chance to establish contacts and further their networking by volunteering in various areas of Student Development Services. For information, please visit our website.
|2. Writing Support Centre Tutors|
The Writing Support Centre's volunteer writing tutors offer feedback on student writing. For more information visit our Peer Tutoring page.
Applicants apply via the above VIP program.
|3. International Student Peer Connection Program|
Through its International Student Peer Connection (ISPC) program, SDC's International Student Services connects new international (graduate and undergraduate) students with current UWO students, called Peer Guides. Peer Guides are familiar with the UWO campus and have had a variety of international and intercultural experiences of their own. Peer Guides act as guides, resource people, cultural interpreters and friendly supports to new international students during their transition to UWO and Canada. Volunteering as a Peer Guide is an opportunity to enhance intercultural, leadership and helping skills as well as develop international friendships. For more information, please contact iss<AT>sdc.uwo.ca, or come to SDC's International Student Centre (Room 200, UCC). Please visit our website in early 2008 for information on the peer guide recruitment for 2008-2009.
