The program is designed to offer meaningful support to identified students to ease their transition to campus life and enhance their experience at Conestoga College. Program partners will be paired with an identified student and provide the student with support in the areas of campus navigation and social interaction. In addition partners will be well versed in the other support services available to all Conestoga students and help the identified student access and utilize these services as desired.

Student Panels
Volunteers needed for Student Panels. Throughout the year Conestoga College hosts special tours of prospective students from High School, Public Schools & other organizations throughout the area. We also host events for High School Counselors and Teachers. At each of these events we have a panel of our Conestoga Students from various programs. The students talk for about 5 to 10 minutes about the pathway they took to get to Conestoga College, what it is like to attend College versus High School and what are their future plans. You will have an opportunity to make a difference and possible change a life. If you would like to be on one of these panels please

Summer Volunteer Opportunity
Every year, the College Association for Language and Literacy holds a conference at an Ontario college. This year, Conestoga College is hosting the conference on June 6 and 7. We are looking for student volunteers to assist in making this year's conference the best to date. We need students to man the Welcome Desk where they will be responsible for welcoming guests and speakers; providing maps and directions; preparing registration packages; registering guests upon arrival; handing out registration packages; and handling general inquiries. This is a great opportunity to meet and network with representatives of other Ontario colleges. Students who are interested in volunteering should contact Erin Brinn at ebrinn@conestogac.on.ca.
