Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Volunteer Posting Policy

The Career Development Centre has guidelines for organizations recruiting volunteers at Laurier. Review these guidelines prior to positing a position.

  • Volunteer opportunities should be with or in support of non-profit, charitable and publicly-funded organizations.
  • Volunteer postings need to outline the time commitment (e.g. one-time event, three to six months, minimum one-year commitment, etc.).
  • Organizations need to provide appropriate training volunteers, including health and safety.
  • Volunteers will not be used to replace another employee's job in the organization.
  • All volunteer postings are subject to review prior to being posted to students. Employers are notified via email when the posting is approved.
  • Any costs incurred by volunteers must be outlined in the position description.

Best Practices for Community Partners

  • Provide volunteers with tasks that are appropriate to their skills, abilities and interests.
  • Provide information about the organization including policies and procedures.
  • Provide a safe and inclusive environment.
  • Provide the volunteer with a position description and, if applicable, a volunteer agreement which outlines expected tasks and agreed working hours.
