Operation, Peer and Event Lead Volunteer Form

Welcome Week (Orientation) and SOAR cannot happen without amazing volunteers! We are currently recruiting Operation, Peer and Event Lead Volunteers to help us deliver Welcome Programs.

Operation Lead Volunteers are chosen through an interview process and work directly with the Student Experience Office in designing and executing welcome and transition programming. 

Peer Lead Volunteers are our front-line volunteers whose main task will be directly interacting with new students and parents throughout Welcome Programs. They are the face of Memorial’s Welcome Program!

Event Lead Volunteers are individuals who work behind the scenes, assisting with event implementation and support. These volunteers help with event set-up, take down, add troubleshooting, as well as provide any event support and implementation needed.

All volunteers are required to complete an information session. Dates and times to be announced.
