Interactive, fast-paced and fun summed up iCON’s November booth at the semi-annual Volunteer Opportunities Fair. Held by the UBC Student Society’s AMS Volunteer Connect program, booths were set up by various lower mainland organizations in the Student Union Building – the heart of UBC campus. Organizations were vying to engage leaders who were also equally eager to lend their talent, motivation and energy.
Over the course of the two days, iCON’s booth was full of activity from keen visitors, enthusiastic to get involved in activities such as helping with the multilingual forums, data collection, research analysis, and translation. Many students from an array of faculties, including the Sciences, Arts, Commerce and Engineering personally connected with iCON’s mission, and readily signed up to participate in iCON’s exciting future initiatives.
We eagerly look forward to immersing ourselves in the energy and enthusiasm of the next fair!
