Volunteer Opportunity for VCC International Students

Join VCC International Education as a volunteer to welcome new students!


What it’s about

On Wednesday, September 2 and Thursday, September 3 VCC International will be hosting orientations for new international students in our career programs. Each orientation will be run from (9:00am-12:30pm) and will take place at the Downtown Campus.

VCC International staff will be leading the orientations, but having returning international student involvement makes all the difference. After all, who better to learn from about the VCC student experience than from current international students!

What we are looking for

All volunteers are enthusiastic, outgoing international students who are currently in a VCC career programs.

What volunteers will do

Volunteers will assist with the check in and greeting process, lead campus tours and be available to answer questions about their program and experiences at VCC.

All volunteers must commit to a 1.5 hour training session and be available for at least one of the orientations (i.e. from 8:30am to approximately 12:45pm on either Wednesday, September 2 and/or Thursday, September 3).

What the benefits are

Volunteering has many benefits. Volunteers:

  • feel great about helping others,
  • enjoy meeting new people,
  • develop new skills through training,
  • learn even more about VCC,
  • receive a reference letter from VCC International Education (for volunteers who contribute a minimum of 9 hours of their time - i.e. are involved in the two orientations and training)

Are you ready?

We ask that all interested students complete an application so that we can meet and discuss your areas of interest and availability.

Fill in the ‘VCC International Education: International Student Orientation Volunteer Application’ form  and email it to or drop it off to the VCC International Education Office (Room 100, Downtown Campus, Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4:00pm).
