Western Peer Leader Program

Student Experience recruits more than 500 student leaders each year. These student leaders are referred to as “Western Peer Leaders” and are current students (undergraduate or graduate) who volunteer or work for the areas within the Student Experience portfolio.

If you want to contribute to the Western community while gaining transferrable skills and growing your university network, these roles are for you! Western Peer Leader opportunities vary in length, time commitment, and expectations. Find the one that fits you!
