It's in our DNA

Our alumni volunteers are the unsung heroes of many events at the University of Saskatchewan and beyond.  Volunteering is in Saskatchewan's DNA, as 58 per cent of adults aged 15 and over volunteered their time in 2013. Thanks to our alumni who are continuously generous with their time and energy, this essential part of our DNA was on full display in 2017 at the Volunteer Summit, Alumni Weekend, Graduation Powwow and Orientation. The spirit of our volunteers help to make events at the U of S even more memorable and fun!

Volunteer opportunities

Help busy students refuel and recharge during final exam season.

Volunteers are needed to hand out snacks and connect with U of S students for a well-deserved study break during spring exams, April 9-25.

Edwards School of Business Centennial Weekend is looking for alumni volunteers to make the celebrations a success.

Volunteer opportunities are available for various roles between August 15, 2018 and September 22, 2018.

U-Start supports newly admitted students and their parents/caregivers and provides information about the next steps of becoming a U of S student.

Alumni, staff and student volunteers, who are familiar with U of S campus and Student Services, are needed to volunteer as guides for tours scheduled for May 12, May 26, June 2 and June 9.

Why volunteer?

Volunteers build resilient communities. More than half of Canada’s 161,000 non-profit and charitable organizations have no paid staff and rely solely on volunteers. 12.7 million volunteers contribute close to 2 billion hours annually. Imagine how different your community would be without the support of volunteers. The important efforts of these volunteers improve quality of life for others. They also gain valuable experience and develop new skills. Additionally, studies show that involved Canadians enjoy an improved overall health. It's also a great way to meet new people and reconnect with your alma mater.
