Thank you for volunteering! An event of this magnitude requires support and participation from the entire campus community. Whether you are a returning student, employee, or alumni we welcome you to volunteer as you play a key role in shaping the student experience and welcoming them to CapU.
Please log on to our new Volunteer Portal to choose your shifts! A training will be scheduled in August for all volunteers.
Starting for Success is a yearlong transition program for first year students to CapU. All new students will be assigned groups based on their program and will be assigned a "Starting for Success" Peer Helper to lead and support them during their first year. As a Peer Helper, you will help Student Affairs staff and program faculty introduce incoming students to the opportunities, programs and services available at Capilano University Peer Helpers will meet with their assigned students twice a month to encourage participation and foster a sense of belonging contributing to their development and engagement with CapU.
