Coast Capital Savings Peer Resource and Leadership Centre

Become a peer leader

The team of PRLC Peer Leaders are committed to providing peer support, information, and referrals to the UFV community of students. Peer leaders don’t follow a typical profile – volunteers can come from all walks of life and bring different life experiences to the table. Successful peer leaders will have the following characteristics:

  • Empathetic
  • Compassionate
  • Able to quickly build relationships with new people
  • Mature
  • Committed and reliable
  • Respectful of privacy and confidentiality
  • Appreciative of diverse lifestyles and points of view
  • Flexible and open to change
  • Able to work individually as well as in a team setting
  • Able to remain calm during emergency situations

Volunteering with the PRLC is a considerable time commitment. Mandatory training is approximately 30 hours. This volunteer position is not for everyone, so please take the time to consider the overall time commitment before applying. Peer leaders are asked to commit to 3-5 hours per week for a minimum of two semesters (September to April).
