Commuter Volunteer Assistants

Commuter volunteer assistant (CVA) help off campus students thrive and belong at King's. Volunteers help commuter program assistants (CPAs) run programs and events and have a chance to see what a CPA role is all about. Often, this opportunity inspires volunteers to apply for a student leadership position the following year.

What do commuter volunteer assistants do?
CVAs are an extra pair of hands at events and the regular programs the team runs for off campus students.  These events might include anything from a casual coffee drop-in to a Christmas extravaganza.  Duties include setting up, assisting in, and closing down events and programs as well as hosting events, helping to meet and greet students, and providing an atmosphere of hospitality.

What’s the commitment?
There are no expectations for CVAs. The commuter team wants volunteers to have a healthy and balanced life at King’s. We encourage students to consider their schedule and to decide how much time they can give.

What qualifications are needed for the CVA role?
A willing heart to serve and a personality that will honor commitments. CVAs can be a commuter or a residence student who has a desire to extend hospitality to students who don’t live on campus.

How does it work in practice?
CVAs are contacted by the CPA who is running an event and together volunteers work out what is most helpful based on their schedule.
