Badger Brigade

The Badger Brigade is a volunteer position where students assist in recruitment events and initiatives run by Recruitment and Liaison Services. Badger Brigade team members acquire valuable skills in public speaking and communication, and it is a great first step in gaining experience to apply to be a Brock Ambassador and/or Smart Start Team Assistant.

Recruitment and Liaison Services is looking for enthusiastic students to be volunteer ambassadors for Brock! Badger Brigade members have a wide range of duties which include, but are not limited to, welcoming guests to campus at recruitment events and communicating with prospective students via various in-person and online initiatives.

Here at Brock, we strongly believe in getting involved outside of the classroom as it is a very important aspect of being successful in post-secondary education and beyond. Valuable skills such as communication, customer service, leadership and teamwork are developed and strengthened from extracurricular opportunities.
