Upper Year Students! We Need Your Help at AC Day 1!

Here at Algonquin College, we are getting ready to welcome new students during AC Day 1 (as part of Orientation) on Tuesday, September 4, and we need your help!
 We are looking for volunteers to support us in a variety of areas: set up, greeters, way finding, welcome and information tables, and much more.

Check out detailed descriptions of the Volunteer Roles

Here are 5 reasons why you should volunteer for AC Day 1:

  1. Meet new people
  2. Make new students feel welcome (remember how you felt on your first day?) and introduce them to the Algonquin College culture
  3. Take part in a recognized Co-Curricular Record activity
  4. Get a sweet volunteer T-shirt to show off your AC pride
  5. See a Redblacks game with your fellow volunteers – our way of saying thank you for your participation!

Volunteer shifts will be available from 6:30am-6:00pm on AC Day 1. All students who volunteer for AC Day 1 are required to attend a mandatory 1.5 hour training session and will be asked to confirm their availability during the training. Please bring a laptop to the training, as there will be an interactive Brightspace session incorporated.
