The following are links to organizations which have approached RAQ looking for retiree volunteers.
RAQ Member Bob Crandall relates his experience in doing this here.
If you would like to help out an international visitor, please you send a quick email to Hanna Stanbury (International Centre) to let her know if you are interested, letting her know the dates that you might be available to host an incoming student. She can be reached via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone 613-533-2604 Ext. 78733.
The International Centre is especially looking for volunteers in three areas:
Volunteers for their other programs would also be welcome. Click here for further information.
Academics for Higher Education and Development (AHED) seeks qualified volunteers for temporary academic positions overseas. All expenses are paid.
Retirees who were members of School of Graduate Studies and Research are invited to volunteer to chair Thesis Defence exams in their former Divisions.
The General Research Ethics Board (GREB) is seeking volunteers, former faculty members from the social sciences, humanities, fine arts, business and education disciplines to serve as GREB members.
The mandate of GREB is to promote the ethical conduct of research involving humans. In joining the GREB, you will have the opportunity to engage in fascinating discussions about the participation of human subjects in various research projects and help develop policies that facilitate the research process at Queen’s.
The GREB meets once every month throughout the year and the average time commitment is 6 hours per month. If you are interested in serving as a GREB member, please email the GREB Chair at chair.GREB@queensu.ca for more information.
