Looking for relevant career experience while giving back to your community? Come to AMS Volunteer Connect – a student service that helps match your unique skills and goals to volunteer positions on UBC campus, in the local community, and abroad!
Registration for the Volunteer Opportunities Fair (Summer 2013) is now open, and closes on March 12th.
Volunteering your time to help others can be an immensely rewarding experience. It’s also an excellent opportunity for students to gain exposure to various career environments and vocational options. Volunteer opportunities are as diverse as the communities themselves, from positions involving mentoring at-risk youth to placements in medical facilities. So whether you’re looking for relevant experience to add to your resumé or simply looking for a way to give back to your community, drop by the AMS Volunteer Connect office (SUB 249C) to learn more about the amazing volunteer opportunities available!
