Available Opportunities

Seeking Selection Leaders!

The Ontario and Maritime (NS/NB) Chapters of the UWC National Committee of Canada (NCC) are looking for new volunteer leaders.  The primary function of the chapter is to select student applicants every year to be nominated for placement at UWC schools around the world.  Chapter leaders are responsible for engaging local volunteers, managing the selection process (reading, interviews and activities), and ensuring that selection results are submitted on schedule.   Other possible roles include UWC promotions, student recruitment, fundraising, and facilitating social activities for chapter volunteers.

Being a chapter leader is a year-round volunteer role, but most of the work occurs between June and December each year.  Leaders work closely with the NCC Executive Director to set schedules, ensure volunteers are trained, and interact with students.  The NCC is currently assessing ways that regional chapters can improve the selection process and new leaders will be part of those discussions.

Excellent communication and organisational skills are required.

Familiarity with the NCC selection process is highly desirable.
