Volunteer Opportunities

Getting involved in the Whitehorse community is a great way to meet new people, make friends and build skills that will greatly enhance your academic experience. Contact Student Engagement Coordinator, Allison (afurniss@yukoncollege.yk.ca) for more information on local volunteer opportunities. She has a desk in the Harry Allen Lounge, swing by any time!


The Student Refugee Program: Yukon College is partnered with World University Services Canada and each year fundraises to sponsor a refugee to be a student at Yukon College. We just launched the first year of this and in August welcomed a Syrian refugee. We are looking for students who are willing to help us fundraise and get involved! If you are interested please contact Allison, afurniss@yukoncollege.yk.ca.
