Speaker Series- The Post-Secondary Student Volunteer!

Published: Apr 25, 2023 @ 12:00 PM

Fun fact- there are just over 2 million students enrolled in post-secondary institutions in Canada. That means there are many communities where a college or university and the humans who spend time there are part of the fabric. On May 10 @ 11am MST, we are pleased to welcome guest speaker Tyler Sinke, from Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario. Tyler works in the Student Life department, as the Campus to Community Coordinator. He has been working in Community Outreach roles since 2017, and has worked closely with volunteers in many different capacities during that time. He has a passion for ongoing learning, and finds the best learning comes from interacting and gathering knowledge from others.

In the session we will discuss key elements of post-secondary student volunteer engagement and retention with a focus on a Volunteer-First mentality. Additionally, we will discuss barriers for student volunteering and possible solutions to overcoming those barriers! 

Register HERE, looking forward to seeing you on May 10!
