At WEF, we offer the opportunity for students to gain practical experience and connect with industry leaders in the field of Project Management.
People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some, it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others, it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.
To get the most out of your volunteer experience, we encourage you to pursue your interests, challenge yourself by trying new activities and get connected with others. You can choose from volunteer opportunities in a variety of areas that can match your skills, interests, and availability.
We offer a flexible range of ways to become involved, no matter how much time you have or the skills you are looking to share. Our volunteer opportunities include:
Assisting in the preparation for the annual Wideman Education Foundation competition
Playing a role in the execution of the annual competition
Promoting WEF online and in live events
Developing content for social media and help grow our base of followers
