Awesome Club Leaders Needed!


Would you like to lead a club next semester?

Club leaders receive official certificates of appreciation from the college and hours can be used and seen as volunteering hours. Being a leader of a club looks excellent on a resume as it shows future employers and universities that you are dedicated, organized and willing to use your time for the benefit of others.

There are several clubs still looking for leaders including:

  • Billiards/Pool
  • Bowling
  • Dragonboat
  • E-Sports/Gaming
  • Food with Friends
  • Music & Singing
  • Swimming

If you are interested to lead a club or would like to start your own club please email Alex at arowe@columbiacollege.ca and explain why you would be an awesome club leader.
