Charity Sophs are upper-year, undergraduate students that volunteer and are responsible for planning, executing, and promoting philanthropic events for incoming students and Sophs.
Their goal is to connect students with volunteer opportunities at local organizations and charities, in and out of the London community. Charity Sophs are paired with each constituency (Residence, Faculty, Affiliate College, OC) rather than incoming students. Charity “Sophing” provides students with great opportunities to get more involved in and out of the Western community.
Charity Soph teams undergo training that equips them to fulfill these duties, while managing their own personal and academic requirements. They spend ample time engaging in team-building activities and forming meaningful relationships with each other in order to form a cohesive unit. In turn, they foster an inclusive and welcoming environment, rich in culture and tradition, for incoming students in their respective floors and buildings.
