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 firstname.lastname@example.org. CareerZone Volunteer Board
