Volunteer Sign-up for Kick Off

We'd love to have you join us in helping welcome more than 1,500 new students to Okanagan College on September 4, 2018. There are several opportunities to get involved. Here are some of the ways you can help:

 Kick Off Carnival
(September 4, 2018)
Parking Lot Greeter  Welcome students to campus and direct them to empty parking spaces and the courtyard where activities are taking place. You will also be available to answer any questions students may have. This is a short-term job first thing in the morning from approximately 8:30 - 10:30 a.m.

General Greeter Greet students and direct them to the activities taking place in the courtyard. Be prepared to answer lots of questions from eager students! Duties will include handing out campus maps, helping keep refreshment tables neat and clean and encouraging students to participate in the day's activities. This position will require you to volunteer from approximately 8:45 - 10 a.m.

Prize Patrol This is the fun job! Spend the afternoon in a team of two engaging with students and handing out prizes. We'll need volunteers for most of the afternoon from about 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Welcome Tent Students' first point of contact! You'll be handing out information, answering questions, and helping direct volunteers, vendors, staff and students to all the events on campus. This will be a very busy job! Volunteers will be needed for short one to two hour shifts between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Floaters  You'll be placed where we need you! Your job could be any of the above or something entirely different. This position will require you to be flexible and willing to pitch in where needed! Short one to two hour shifts (or longer if you're willing and able) will be required for this job.

Decor Team  Be part of the team that makes our event theme come alive! Early birds are needed for this position that goes from 7 to 8:30 a.m.

 Media Technicians Capture all the fun and excitement of orientation through videos and photographs. All levels of experience are welcome to apply. If you have your own equipment to use, even better!

Carnival and Movie Night 
(September 5 at 6:30 p.m.)
Join us in the evening for carnival and movie night in the Courtyard! We will need volunteers to help hand out pizza, run the carnival games and interact with students. Once the movie starts, find a spot in the Courtyard to watch with all the other students!
