Thank you for your continued engagement in and support of our student leader programs. Applications for the 2019-2020 academic year are now closed. Check back in February 2020 for recruitment for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Become a Orientation Leader (Soph)
Orientation Leaders (Sophs) are upper-year students who have dedicated themselves to welcoming students to Western and the affiliate university colleges (Brescia, Huron and King’s). Sophs are carefully selected and trained to ensure the positive orientation and transition of each incoming student. Brescia Soph’s are leaders, resources, supports and friends to our new-to-Brescia students throughout Orientation Week!
Become a Career Peer
The Career Peers are important members of the Student Life Centre. This peer program emphasizes a student-driven, peer-to-peer support approach to career development, offered through a customized one-on-one setting. As a team of upper-year students, Career Peers provide resume, cover letter and Linked-In support to Brescia students and work closely with SLC staff to deliver career-related programming, such as workshops, mock interviews and events.
Become a Mentee in the Professional Mentoring Program
The Professional Mentoring Program is an opportunity for a senior student in any discipline to be matched with a mentor, who may be a Brescia alumna or community member. Mentoring is a great way to increase your communication and networking skills, help you prepare for your future career and transition into the professional work force, and an opportunity for you to develop your skills while learning from someone else’s experiences. Mentees will work closely with their mentor and the Coordinator, Student Life and Learning from the Student Life Centre for the academic year to develop and maintain a positive and supportive mentoring relationship.
Become the Student Coordinator for the Professional Mentoring Program
The Student Coordinator position is a volunteer opportunity for an upper-year student to further their professional development by assisting the Coordinator, Student Life & Learning in administering all aspects of the Professional Mentoring Program. The Student Coordinator will assist with program administration, curriculum development, meeting facilitation, mentee support, and other areas as needed.
Become a Wellness Education Peer
Wellness Education Peers are important members of the Student Life Centre (SLC) at Brescia. The Wellness Education Peer Program is a student driven program that emphasizes the motto of “by students, with students, for students” with advisement from the Student Wellness Educator. As a team of second to upper-year students, WEP’s will participate in developing campus-wide initiatives and key institutional messages using multiple approaches (ie. website, social media, workshops, print resources, video) to improve supportive attitudes and awareness of mental health/wellness. Wellness Education Peers will be known as mental health champions at Brescia and will encourage early help-seeking behaviours by teaching students about the mental health continuum, resilience building, increasing knowledge of self-care/self-management strategies and how to recognize when individuals should seek help.
Become the Student Coordinator: Wellness Education Peer Team
The Student Coordinator role is an enhanced volunteer opportunity for an individual from a previous Wellness Peer Program to continue their professional development by assisting the Student Wellness Educator in administering all aspects of the programs. The Student Coordinator will assist with program administration, program development, workshop facilitation, Wellness Education Peer support, and other areas as needed.
At Brescia, you have the opportunity to participate in both Brescia and Western University Clubs. Clubs are a wonderful opportunity to meet and interact with other students who have similar interests as you. If you cannot find a club to meet your passion, why not start your own. Visit the Brescia University College Students’ Council Office for information about starting a new club.
Check out the alphabetical listing of the clubs available on Western’s campus.
