Attention All Returning International Students!

Peer Assistant Volunteer Opportunity!

Remember how welcomed the peer assistants made you feel when you first arrived at the Slutzker Center?

We are once again in need of reliable and welcoming volunteers during the Summer & Fall of 2017 arrival process to greet the new international students.

Peer Assistants are unpaid volunteers who support the Slutzker Center in its mission to support and to serve Syracuse University’s international student population.

The primary roles of a Peer Assistant are:

  • To welcome and assist students during the arrival, check-in and throughout the orientation process. 
  • To provide students with answers and/or direct them towards SCIS-approved resources.

This is a great opportunity to meet new international students, to form new friendships, build your resume and give back to the University community. 

To be considered, candidates must meet the following criteria:

  • Enrolled at Syracuse University for at least one academic semester,
  • Attend training prior to beginning the Peer Assistant work. 

Peer Assistant volunteers will be required to work a minimum of 14 hours per week during the term(s) for which they applied. Based on availability, Peer Assistants will be expected to work from June 12 –August 1 -31, 2017

Peer assistants will receive training on a mutually agreed-upon date after their application has been accepted.
