UBReUSE Looking for Student Volunteers

Posted by Tim on April 12, 2018 in Networking, Stress Relief, Student Clubs, Volunteering, Volunteers Needed

UBreUSE is going on its third year of operation at UB this year, and we need help from motivated underclassmen. As a leader in sustainability on campus I was hoping you would be able to connect me with some people that you have identified as young leaders. A little bit about UBreUSE to share with your students:

UBreUSE is University at Buffalo’s official zero waste initiative move out program started by a handful of UB’s Education and Leadership Fellows for Sustainability (including baby freshman me!) back in Spring 2016. Since then we have diverted over 12,000 lbs of waste from the landfill, and earned over $3,000 from sales.

The Problem: During move out of people throw away items that aren’t garbage (Clothing, kitchen ware, rugs, shower caddies, even mini fridges and TVs, etc) because they don’t need them anymore or can not take everything home with them. These items are completely fixable or usable, yet they are going directly to landfill.

Our Solution: We believed that we could do something about this needless waste, and decided to organize a way to collect all of the unwanted goods and find people whodid want them.

Turns out, the people who want this exact stuff are UB underclassmen moving into the same dorms in the fall! SO what we do is this:

1.) Collection during move out week

2.) Storage in Trailers on campus, refurbish and clean items over the summer

3.) SALE of all items during move in week (late August/early September)

What we need:

This program is an entity of UB Sustainability and we are supported by Pro Staff, but it is completely student driven. UBreUSE needs hard working and dedicated students to make it work. Active volunteers who can not only help out during event weeks, but can represent UBreUSE year round and be a part of the team. We work hard and have lots of fun year round. In addition to needing team members, we are also looking for students who show initiative to promote to team leaders to carry out the program in the future.

To learn more or to help, please contact….

International Student Mentoring Program Student Mentors Needed

Posted by Tim on August 4, 2014 in Community Announcements, Networking, Student Clubs, Volunteering, Volunteers Needed

Invitation to Join an International Student Mentoring Program

Are you interested in learning about other cultures?  Would you like to get to know international students better?  Do you want to help someone from another culture?  The International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) office and UB Counseling Services invite you to participate as a mentor in the International Student Mentoring Program.

We are recruiting Junior and Senior Undergraduate students to participate as mentors for newly arrived international students during the Fall 2014 semester.  You don’t have to know about other cultures, speak other languages or have traveled overseas.  All you need is a sincere desire to help others and an interest in people from other cultural backgrounds.

Here is an overview of the program:

  • Each mentor will be paired with two newly arrived international students.
  • The commitment is for one semester.
  • Mentors must be available to meet with their mentees for one hour every two weeks.  The activity can be as simple as having lunch together, going for coffee or taking a walk, or as elaborate as visiting a local tourist attraction, going to a sports event or having a family dinner in your home.
  • There will be separate half-day training sessions for both mentors and mentees.  Mentors will learn about the mentees’ culture(s), receive valuable information about campus resources available to mentees, and learn tips on how to best interact with someone from another country.
  • There will be an end-of-semester party to celebrate your mentoring accomplishments

It doesn’t take more than one hour to make a difference and learn something new!

If you are interested in joining the International Student Mentoring Program, please complete the mentor application found at the following link:  http://inted.oie.buffalo.edu/isss/mentor/

If you have any questions about the program, please call 645-2258 or email jlkumro@buffalo.edu.

We look forward to hearing from you and working with you!

Sincerely,

Jessica Ereiz, Assistant Director, ISSS; International Student Mentoring Program Coordinator
