U Start Your School's Chapter

Are you:

  • Looking for great extra-curricular experience, running an organization of volunteers to teach hundreds and raise thousands?
  • A university student looking to apply yourself and give back to society?
  • Interested in gaining exposure to the world of social entrepreneurship, managing a sustainable social venture?

We at Students Offering Support are looking for the next set of exceptional university student leaders, and for the 2012-2013 school year, we have applications open for chapter presidents at the following universities:

  • University of Saskatchewan
  • University of Winnipeg
  • University of Regina
  • University of Lethbridge
  • Trent University
  • Mount Royal University
  • Thompson Rivers University

We have spent more than 7 years developing the support and infrastructure, so students leaders can leverage the tools available to make SOS your own initiative at your school.

With a sustainable business model, full website support, a brand identity, and the presence to provide a national community (national conference, peer-groups, online volunteer portal), you can drive amazing results, gain amazing experience, and meet amazing people in your very first year.

"Looking back on the experience of founding Trent SOS I can proudly say I was an SOS pioneer. I was part of what is becoming a growing movement across Canada which seeks to empower students in Canada and abroad with the knowledge and resources they need to succeed. Students Offering Support provides as truly unique and sustainable approach to charitable work making significant contributions both locally and globally."

Paul Jones, Founder and Past President
Trent University's chapter of Students Offering Support

As a chapter president, your are a social entrepreneur. Your job is to find and lead a team of student volunteers to:

  • Raise Marks - coordinate and run Exam-AID sessions for various university (and potentially high school) courses.
  • Raise Money - through your Exam-AIDs, by charging a $20 donation to attend a session, you have the opportunity to raise $500, $5000, or $50,000 for a community in need.
  • Raise Roofs - at the end of each year, your team will work with one of our NGO partners to devise, coordinate, and help build the chosen project on a volunteer outreach trip at the end of each year.

CASE STUDY: The University of British Columbia's chapter started in September 2010. In their very first year, SOS volunteers tutored more than 500 students and raised $12,500 for a school in Nicaragua, which was built by 17 SOS volunteers in May!

For the 2012-2013 school year, Students Offering Support has chapters operating on 30 university campuses across North America. These student associations are run solely by student volunteers who are helping thousands of their peers in the classroom. In doing this we are working towards raising $400,000 for numerous marginalized communities to provide children with access to a quality education.

SOS is currently hiring the next set of student leaders who are interested in gaining this entrepreneurial experience as the founder and president of their school’s chapter.
