If you were ever interested in volunteering, Conestoga makes it extremely easy to do since there are so many options and positions. You are able to get recognized for your volunteer positions through the CCR (Co-Curricular Record). The CCR is an official document that recognizes learning/volunteer positions that you have achieved through approved co-curricular experiences at Conestoga! It is a great piece to add to any portfolio or resume to show to employers.
There are so many ways to volunteer at Conestoga and different positions for every interest! Here are some volunteer opportunities that are typically always open:
Student Ambassador – Represent Conestoga at events, student panels and campus tours! Important as they promote the school to prospective students.
Student Panelists – Sit on a panel and tell your story to prospective students. You only have to speak for 5-7 minutes about why you chose Conestoga and your program, the process of applying, highlights and graduation plans!
Event Volunteers – Some events that need volunteers are the College Fairs, and Fall & Spring Open Houses. You will be in charge of greeting and directing guests, giving tours, assisting with set up and help with vendors. These are incredibly important because I know I would have gotten lost when I went to the Open House if it wasn’t for the volunteers.
The CCR (which can be accessed through MyConestoga) has even more opportunities! Make sure to keep updated on all the possible opportunities and consider volunteering at Conestoga!
