Staff and faculty of York University are encouraged to volunteer to give incoming students an insider’s look at campus this fall. York U’s welcome campaign, YU Belong, is now in its third year. It helps new students navigate campus during their first few days at York. The program relies on staff and faculty volunteers to answer students’ questions and help them find their way around campus.
The purpose of YU Belong is to ease the student transition and offer increased accessibility to campus information. Volunteers can be identified by their highly visible and identifiable YU Belong buttons and lanyards.
After signing up, volunteers receive a package via internal mail containing a map, button, lanyard and some key information. YU Belong participants can also sign up to volunteer for York Orientation Day to support the largest gathering of incoming students in York’s history. It takes place on Sept. 8.
Staff and faculty can learn more and register to be a part of YU Belong by visiting orientation.yorku.ca/yu-belong.
