Clayton Based Only - Please apply here if you wish to be a aMigo Moderator. If you wish to also be involved in the Clayton based events linked to aMigo, please also apply here: https://goo.gl/forms/SHXPqj6cE5jwCZRF3
Volunteers will be active during the aMigo activation period (4 weeks before Week 0 - end of Week 4 per semester).
How does it work
After receiving their offer, new students are encouraged to create an aMigo profile, they are then asked to choose a number of interests. All student union pre-O week and post O-week events and offerings will be listed through aMigo as an interest and displayed as part of the aMigo endorsed event calendar.
Trained aMigo moderators will answer student questions and encourage students to socialise with one another. They will also actively promote events and activities, as well as report any activities they feel are unfit for the space.
Volunteers will be provided with:Basic approachability trainingModerator expectations and requirementsEvent volunteering expectations and requirementsaMigo Moderator trainingCampus Tour presentation (Optional - depending on campus needs)Volunteers will be expected to complete the following LILO Units: Communicate with impact Connecting across cultures Event and project management Successful mentoring
Volunteers will also be able to receive a certificate at the end of the aMigo term if they are deemed active and reliable volunteers.
Apparel and Recognition
While aMigo is virtual, the purpose of the platform is for students to make friends virtually and then physically meet up with their aMigo friends.
Volunteers will not only be online moderators but are encouraged to be involved in orientation events and activities.
Volunteers will be provided and are expected to wear their aMigo hats and any campus based apparel, while running orientation events and when actively promoting aMigo.
We recommend that volunteers have been Monash University students for at least one whole semester prior to applying. This is strongly recommended as students will have a better understanding of the university's services and opportunities.
