Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

Spring Convocation Social Media Ambassadors


We're looking for social media-savvy alumni to help us congratulate the Class of 2018 and welcome them to the alumni community during Spring Convocation (June 3-14)

Benefits for you:

  • Volunteer opportunity you can do from anywhere
  • Be one of the first people to welcome graduating students to our alumni family
  • Certain posts will be eligible for our daily contest in which you and a friend could each win a $50 gift card to an Alumni-owned business (more details below)
  • Access to our volunteer perks, which include free tickets to select alumni events, volunteer socials and professional development opportunities


  • Must have a Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram account
  • No other skills/experience necessary

Key Responsibilities:

  • Follow UAlbertaAlumni on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram
  • During convocation, help welcome the Class of 2018 to the alumni family by posting on your social media accounts with the hashtag #UAlberta18. For example:
  • Send your best wishes to the Class of 2018;
  • Reminisce about your own convocation day;
  • Share your grad photo from way back when;
  • Tag any graduating students you know to congratulate them directly. **BONUS: All tagged grads will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from an alumni-owned business, including Poppy Barley, Doughnut Party and District Coffee. And you’ll be entered to win, too, just for tagging them!
  • Share or re-tweet posts from our @UAlbertaAlumni accounts
