At Royal Roads University (RRU), we know the value of connecting learning in class with real-life experiences: volunteering is one way to do this. Volunteering is a way to build skills, make friends, and learn while giving back to the community.
Community Service Leadership Project
The Community Service Leadership Project (CSL) is a pilot program in which students are able to access opportunities to connect academic learning with real life experiences by doing volunteer work in the community. Participating students select co-curricular volunteer opportunities at community events and initiatives that match their specific interests.
Community service is a great way to enrich your learning experience while making a real difference in the community. If you are interested in getting involved, please complete this survey to share your interests.
Examples of volunteer opportunities in the community include:
- Baking with residents at Pacifica Housing
- Home renovations with HeroWorks
- Race marshals for CIBC Run for the Cure
- Social media support for Creatively United for the Planet
- Create a Track it Forward profile. It’s fast, free and easy!
- Sign up for upcoming CSL events
- Download the free Track it Forward App to start track your hours and record your progress.
The Community Service Leadership Certificate of Achievement
Students who participate in two or more RRU CSL initiatives and complete 20 volunteer hours or more will be awarded a certificate of achievement.
*Any unexcused absences from pre-registered events will make students ineligible for the certificate.
Campus Ambassador Program
Campus Ambassadors are student volunteers who assist with orientation and welcome events for new students each fall as well as major student events throughout the year like the International Showcase and the Career Development Conference.
New Campus Ambassador volunteers are recruited each summer and training takes place in early September. For more information about the Campus Ambassador program, please contact Student Engagement.
