Volunteering as a Brock University Student


As the new school year approaches, it is a good idea to start thinking about participating in volunteer activities. Volunteering is important because it can connect you with like-minded peers and mentors to expand your network, build experiences on your resume, develop your skills, and earn credit towards the Campus Wide Co-Curriculum. However, volunteering not only benefits you, but it also greatly benefits your community.

Today we're going to discuss three ways that Brock students can find volunteer experiences!

1. Brock University Volunteer Association (BUVA)

The Brock University Volunteer Association's mission is to help community organizations while developing students' skills. BUVA is great to join because they will match you directly with on of their partner organizations based on your interests. As a member of the association, you will be expected to attend monthly meetings, perform 20 volunteer hours over the course of the year, and complete various workshops focused on developing skills and competencies. The association is open to all Brock students who are interested in making a difference in the Niagara community no matter your program of study! The application process for the 2022-2023 school year is yet to be announced, however for more information please email 

2. CareerZone Volunteer Board

Here at CareerZone, we have our very own volunteer board! Through the CareerZone portal ( you can access many different volunteer opportunities under the "Volunteering" tab as shown below: 

Various volunteer positions are advertised here, and you are even able to apply directly on the portal ensuring that your application process is uncomplicated. Make sure you check on the board frequently as new positions are always being added. 

3. Brock Cares - Volunteer Fair 

All Brock students are invited to join us as we bring together campus and community partners to share how you can support your community through volunteering and service. At this event, you will have the chance to talk with representatives from community partners to learn more about their work and how you can get involved. The event will take place on September 20, 2022, in Market Hall from 11-2 pm. We hope to see you there!

Overall, volunteering is very important. Before the new school year begins, take some time to reflect on how you are going to get involved and make a difference in your community!
