Students Offering Support (SOS) is coming to Memorial University for the '12-'13 school year and we are on the hunt for the best student leaders to run the organization. As the chapter president, you will be the driving force behind your local and global impact:
- Raise Marks: We help student locally by running 3-hour group review sessions ?Exam-AIDs? for various university courses, helping first year students prepare for exams, right when they need it!
- Raise Money: From your Exam-AIDs, by charging a $20 donation to attend a session, you have the opportunity to raise as much as $100,000 in 1 year for a development project in rural Latin America.
- Raise Roofs: With the funds raised throughout the year, your team will work with one of our NGO partners to devise, coordinate, and actually build the chosen project on a two-week volunteer outreach trip at the end of each year!
Students Offering Support is one of the largest University student groups in Canada, with chapters on 26 Universities. With more than 1600 active volunteers who taught 20,000 students this year, SOS raised $300,000 for 30 development projects built by volunteers this summer!
