WANTED: VOLUNTEER NOTETAKERS
Are you interested in doing some volunteer work while you are attending classes this fall?
There may be students in your classes who need access to quality notes for reasons related to a disability or medical condition. Accessibility Services is seeking volunteer notetakers to fill this need.
If your instructor makes a request for a volunteer notetaker in one of your classes, please consider signing up! It’s a great way to sharpen your own note-taking skills and help out another student at the same time. BONUS: You will receive a Reference Letter upon request and your name will be in a draw to win a University of Winnipeg Bookstore gift card.
Contact email@example.com for more information.
