Student Volunteers

Student volunteers are the heart, hands, and soul of the IASWG symposium. IASWG will select around 30 student volunteers to perform tasks related to session oversight, zoom tech support, and translation services. In exchange for your time and effort, volunteer's symposium registration fee will be waived.

In order to be considered for a volunteer assignment, applicants MUST:

  • Be enrolled in a Community Services, BSW or MSW program or be a Community Services, BSW or MSW recent grad who graduated in either December 2022 or May 2023
  • Be a current IASWG student member (can join once your volunteer status as been confirmed)
  • Be willing to be an active and engaged volunteer for at least 2 half-day volunteer shifts
  • Attend a volunteer orientation session before the symposium

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis

Selection: Please note, you must be a member of IASWG to be able to serve as a volunteer for the symposium. Once you are notified about your volunteer application status, we request that you join as a student member and register for the symposium as a volunteer before May 1st, 2023. 

If you have any questions, please contact Emily, the Volunteer Coordinator, via email at [email protected], who is the primary point of contact before and during the symposium.
