Join the Volunteer team

Apply to become a Peer Helper for our Starting for Success program

Starting for Success is a new year-long transition program for first-year students to CapU. All new students will be placed into groups based on their program and be assigned a "Starting for Success" Peer Helper to lead and support them during their first year. This is an amazing leadership opportunity for the selected peer helpers! As a peer helper, you will introduce incoming students to some of the many opportunities, programs, and services available at Capilano University. Your volunteer work will be to encourage our new students to participate and engage in the many opportunities at CapU and help create and foster a sense of belonging for new students under your charge.
