The Peer Helper Program provides leadership opportunities to Vancouver Island University students who are inspired to volunteer and make positive contributions to our diverse campus community. 

Peer Helpers operate from the Faculty of International Education, and contribute to welcome events and socio-cultural programs that serve to support and connect over 2,000 international students with the campus and the community.

The application period for the Peer Helper Program is December/January of each year. The program is a one year volunteer commitment from February to January that consists of training sessions, workshops and a minimum of 40 hours of volunteer service.
