Get involved and expand your inter-cultural skill set!
International Student Services (ISS) recruits over 200 volunteers a year. We offer a wide variety of volunteer opportunities that start off with basic help, such as an Event Assistant or Office Volunteer, to positions with more responsibilities you can work up to, such as a Welcome Ambassador or Senior Peer. Explore your options and discover your best fit!
Our volunteer recruitment cycle reopens at the end of January 2020. Check back then for 2020 Info Sessions dates and times.
Attend an info session to learn about the volunteer opportunities available at International Student Services and sign up for your ISS volunteer account. Open to all UAlberta students.
All sessions are located in Telus 134.
