The SSSC Mission Statement
The Science Student Success Centre helps all undergraduate students in the Faculty of Science define and achieve their academic, career, and social goals.
So What Do We Really Do in the SSSC?
As an SSSC volunteer, your mission is to make a difference in the Faculty of Science. This can be done in tons of ways - by mentoring another student one-on-one and helping them set goals, running a workshop where students will learn about getting into medical school, coming up with a new event that the SSSC could offer to Computer Science students, or helping one of your SSSC teammates study for an exam. As an SSSC volunteer, your job is to make a difference to as many undergraduate students as you can in whatever ways that you can think of!
Are you the kind of person that goes above and beyond to help out other people? Do you feel rewarded when you share your skills to assist someone else? Do you love coming up with creative ideas and then seeing them take shape and grow? If this sounds like you, then we want you on our team!
What Will You Get Out of Volunteering in the SSSC?
Being a volunteer with the SSSC is a fun and rewarding opportunity that will challenge you and allow you to develop new skills while using and improving your existing abilities. Plus we do tons of fun activities just for our team like Pirate Adventures, SkyZone, escape rooms, laser tag, and talent shows!
Being an SSSC volunteer will also connect you to other high achieving students who will become your friends and colleagues. You will develop your aptitude for leadership – skills that you can take with you when you become the Prime Minister or the top surgeon in the world. Volunteering in the SSSC will also open up doors to research and professional growth – our team members often get special consideration when finding industry mentors, receiving scholarships, attending selective events, serving on committees, and even when applying for summer jobs. We work hard to make sure that our mentors get the recognition that they deserve.
Additionally, all volunteer work in the SSSC is recognized on the Carleton Co-Curricular Record.
