Call for WorldVIU Volunteers & Festival Participants
We rely on the contributions of VIU students to make our annual week of events successful and fun! So, how can you get involved? We are looking for students to participate in the following roles:
Help out as a WorldVIU General Volunteer!
Volunteers assist with various events throughout the week.
Join us as a Cultural Booth Exhibitor
By sharing aspects of our culture with each other, we can generate more understanding and awareness of different perspectives. Showcase aspects of your culture as an exhibitor at the WorldVIU Festival.
Share a Performance
We can observe culture through dance, music and artistic performances. We are seeking individuals and groups to share cultural performances at the WorldVIU Festival.
Join the World Fashion Showcase
Clothing can tell us a lot about a culture. Share traditional, modern or ceremonial dress from your culture or one close to your heart and take part in the WorldVIU Festival Fashion Showcase.
We love our WorldVIU Volunteers!
To celebrate the contributions of our volunteers, we host an annual Wrap Party & Volunteer Appreciation Event on the Friday of WorldVIU Days. All participants will also receive a Certificate of Appreciation from VIU as a showing of our gratitude.
Contact us to sign up as a WorldVIU Days Participant or Volunteer!
Faculty and Staff
Every year numerous faculty and staff work with event organizers to engage students in WorldVIU Days. This year we want to actively create a connected community through social experiments and design interventions. We also want to showcase efforts that faculty, staff and students are making that increase social connections on and off campus, especially connections between international and domestic students or between people from different cultural backgrounds.
Please let us know if you have ideas for the week or want to collaborate on any events.
If you are interested and are not sure how you could be involved, please feel free to contact me so we can talk about possibilities!
