April- Did You Know?


The Pan AM Games are coming to York University.

By now you should have at least heard grumblings of York’s involvement in the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games. Construction is near completion of the CIBC Pan Am/Parapan Am Athletics Stadium the home of the majority of the athletic events. Also, the Rexall Centre is hosting the always popular tennis events. With the university’s involvement in the games it makes for a good opportunity to get involved with the various volunteer positions.

Volunteer During the Games

These individuals will assist in preparing the field of play, take tickets, usher spectators to their seats, shuttle athletes and dignitaries to venues or participate in the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. To apply for a game-time volunteer role visit the Pan Am Toronto 2015 website. https://volunteer.toronto2015.org/Portal/index.cfm/volunteer/login


Student Volunteers

As a student volunteer for the games you will receive OSAP interest and payment free grace period extensions or reduced pre-study contributions. With some events happening right here on campus it’s a good opportunity for students to help out and receive some great benefits.
