Public Square Volunteers

SFU Public Square, a signature initiative designed to spark, nurture and restore community connections, establishes Simon Fraser University as the go-to convener of serious and productive conversations about issues of public concern.

More than a single place or program, SFU Public Square assembles the hearts, minds and talents of diverse communities to promote inclusive, intelligent, and inspiring dialogue. SFU Public Square events and offerings proclaim SFU’s vision of being Canada’s leading community-engaged research university.

Engagement Lead:

Mentored by SFU Public Square staff, Engagement Lead Volunteers hold leadership positions in various capacities. They were an essential part of the team in preparing for and executing the annual two-day Community Summit.

Office Volunteer:

Office Volunteers support the day-to-day needs of the program office. They are matched, wherever possible, with staff and projects that coincide with their interests, skills, and desired learning outcomes. These volunteers support engagement programming by assisting in the areas of event planning, communications, administration, research, and volunteer coordination.
