Volunteer Network

Student Volunteer Network 

The WE-SPARK Volunteer Network is a collaborative and interdisciplinary team of post-secondary students working to support and advance local health research. WE-SPARK works with our student volunteers to match them with projects that align with their interests and best suit their talents, skills, and/or needs. WE-SPARK also facilitates self-initiated projects, giving students the tools and guidance required to actively move research forward in Windsor-Essex. By integrating student volunteers in our efforts, we train the next generation of researchers and create a network of students engaged in research and innovation.

Vision: An interdisciplinary student network that collaboratively supports health research and enhances education in Windsor-Essex. 

Mission: Create unique collaborative volunteer opportunities for post-secondary students in the area of health research.

WE-SPARK's volunteer network was established to support health research and enhance public education in Windsor-Essex. Volunteers are paired with you on a per-project basis to provide our students with a diverse range of unique collaborative opportunities. Affiliate groups and programs may submit a request to have volunteers participate in their projects or within their organization. Our volunteers are trained in various areas and are ready to contribute to your projects. If you have any questions, please contact our Volunteer Network Coordinator, Ryan Palazzolo, at palazzor@uwindsor.ca.
