What UBC Alumni Volunteers Do
UBC’s Crane Library provides visually impaired students with audio recorded materials. It is sustained by volunteers like Mary Taitt.
Carmen Lee, BA’01
Carmen Lee loves her job, and volunteers to help students find the same level of satisfaction in their future careers.
Rory Green, BA’10
Childhood dreams and the realities of life don’t always match, but Rory Green, BA’10, knows all about happily-ever-afters.
Museum educator volunteers engage visitors in the wonder of biodiversity through discussions and activities, and answer questions about the museum, its collections, and its research.
Matches spend two-four hours together each week doing a wide range of low cost or no cost fun activities that they both enjoy. Big Brothers are asked to make a minimum one year commitment.
Guides play a vital role in our mission by bringing the collection to life through engaging educational interactions with garden visitors. For this role, we are seeking volunteers who are passionate about ecology and botany, eager to share their knowledge with others, and interested in learning more about the plant world and biodiversity.
The Intergenerational Landed Learning on the Farm Project is a unique initiative of the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy, Faculty of Education, University of British Columbia, with its focus on agriculture and food as the link between a healthy environment and human well-being.
Farm Friend volunteers work in pairs (generally one senior and one younger volunteer) to mentor elementary children (ages 8-12) in growing food in raised garden beds at the UBC Farm.
Whether you’re in industry, academia, government or business, you have a unique story. By sharing your experiences, either as a mentor, speaker, or co-op employer, you can provide students with invaluable insight that will help them choose their own path in science.
