Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, get involved in the community, and have fun! It also looks great on your résumé! It gives you leadership and organizational experience and also demonstrates your reliability and responsibility. When you’re looking for a job, the Pride Centre staff can be an excellent reference!
The SFUO’s Volunteer of the Year program also provides a small bursary and a Volunteer Gala for an honouree(s) at the end of the year. It’s a great opportunity for us to show off our volunteers, and a great way for you to enjoy the community and SFUO recognition for your efforts.
As a volunteer, you can commit to as many or as few hours as you’d like and will never be assigned to a project that doesn’t interest you. We provide full training and try to keep the workload light and fun—our volunteers are the core of the Centre and we want to keep them happy. Additionally, you can add your volunteer hours to your co-curricular record or use our centre as a placement with a class.
