What is the GO Team?

The GO Team is made up of a group of dedicated volunteers who provide new students with their first Langara network experience during the Orientation period. GO Team volunteers make the transition to Langara easier and more fun while connecting new students with the people, tools, resources, and services they need in order to become successful Langara students. 

This term, more than 50 volunteers will be accepted into the Fall 2020 GO Team. These volunteers will participate in virtual engagement and activities training sessions, and volunteer at the Langara Connects events in August and September 2020.

All GO Team volunteers will receive:

  • volunteer hours for every completed training session and volunteer shift
  • specialized training in virtual engagement and activities
  • a chance to make a difference in the Langara community,and  make new friends
  • a thank you letter, and additional recognition throughout the program

The GO Team is open to any Langara student. Please contact us with any accessibility concerns.

What kind of training will I receive?

GO Team training is interactive and comprehensive and takes 4 hours to fully complete. During training, volunteers apply new knowledge through exercises, service, and reflection. Training prepares GO Team members to be agile event leaders with good communication skills. However, these skills can be applied to any area of life. Virtual training sessions are approximately two (2) hours in length and may include lectures, games, puzzles, and reflection activities. 

What will I do during my volunteer shifts?

You are going to welcome and connect with new students in virtual events where you are going to lead a breakout room in Zoom. In the breakout rooms, you are going to perform some activities to engage and have some fun. All the activities will be demonstrated during the training sessions, that is why you cannot miss them.

Don't worry if you do not have any experience. You are going to be with another volunteer in the breakout room, so you are not going to be by yourself.
