Kristen Smith

Manager, Student & Community Outreach

Canada Games provides Brock University with a unique opportunity to engage with our local and national community as we prepare to host the Summer Games in 2021.

The Community Engagement Sub Committee is composed of staff from across the University who will serve to recruit, train and support student volunteers as they become involved with the Games over the next two years. The committee will work alongside the Canada Host Society and other community organizations to identify volunteer needs and will work to meet those needs through training and preparation of a cohort of student volunteers.
