Any returning undergraduate student is eligible to volunteer with Fall Orientation. Volunteers must be in good academic standing following the academic performance evaluation (APE) that takes place in June.
Fall Orientation volunteers must complete training in Brightspace over the summer and mandatory one day in person training for all volunteers is held at the end of August. Dates to be announced and communicated to volunteers.
To ensure a safe environment, all volunteers must obtain a Police Record Check (PRC) consisting of Level 3 – Vulnerable Sector Check. All volunteers must submit their police record check to the Student Experience Office through the PRC Website.
The time varies depending on how busy the police stations are, we strongly recommend all volunteers to get their police record checks done by beginning to mid- June in order to have their Police Record Checks ready by end of August.

Shinerama is an organization founded in the 1960s to help raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis (CF). CF is a genetic disease that causes thick mucus to build up in the pancreas and the lungs and there is no cure. Every year, our program integrates Shinerama throughout the summer before and well into the Fall Orientation week to support the fight against cystic fibrosis and foster a community of service at Carleton.
