Current volunteer opportunities

Volunteer for the Young Alumni Advisory Committee

Are you a recent graduate looking to stay connected to USask?

The Advancement Office is looking for members to join the Young Alumni Advisory Committee. This committee represents and advocates for recent alumni while fostering a relationship with the Advancement Office.  The committee advises the Advancement Office by providing feedback and input on programs, events and communications that relate to and impact young alumni.

About the role

The USask Young Alumni Advisory Committee is open to all alumni from any USask college or program. Young alumni is defined as any alumni who graduated within the past ten years and are thirty-five years or younger in age.

Time commitment and schedule

A time commitment of four meetings per year is required. Each meeting will be scheduled on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm and will be done virtually. Meetings will be held during the following months (dates to be determined): 

  • October 2020
  • January 2021
  • March 2021
  • June 2021

Young Alumni Advisory Committee Terms of Reference

More than 100,000 USask alumni live outside of Saskatoon, making up a powerful group of people connected by a shared USask experience.

Regional alumni networks help alumni meet, volunteer, learn, connect and support what is happening at the University of Saskatchewan.

Network volunteers will lead different alumni activities and experiences in their respective communities. The sky is the limit to what you can do in your region. We suggest events that focus on community, attending Huskies games, networking or professional development events and organizing alumni group outings.

Volunteers needed!

On top of leading regional activities, volunteers provide valuable feedback on how USask can better serve their local alumni community. USask will support these volunteer-led networks with resources to guide the activities.

Volunteering is in our alumni’s DNA - they are an essential part of everything we do and we are so grateful of the time, talent and treasure that many of our alumni give back to the University of Saskatchewan.
