SUBJECT: Leadership Opportunity: [position] of [chapter] SOS (teach hundreds locally, raise $1000’s globally)

Students Offering Support (SOS, www.studentsofferingsupport.ca) is [coming] to [university] for the ’12-’13 school year and we are on the hunt for the best student leaders to run the organization. As the [insert job position], you will be the driving force behind your local and global impact:

•             Raise Marks – We help student locally by running 3-hour group review sessions ‘Exam-AIDs’ for various university courses, helping first year students prepare for exams, right when they need it!

•             Raise Money – From your Exam-AIDs, by charging a $20 donation to attend a session, you have the opportunity to raise as much as $100,000 in 1 year for a development project in rural Latin America.

•             Raise Roofs – With the funds raised throughout the year, your team will work with one of our NGO partners to devise, coordinate, and actually build the chosen project on a two-week volunteer outreach trip at the end of each year!


Students Offering Support is one of the largest University student groups in Canada, with chapters on 26 Universities. Since ’04, SOS has helped more than 25,000 students raise their marks, which has raised $1,000,000 building 55 development projects to date.


Want to hone your leadership skills? Interested in having a huge impact on yourself and those around you? Apply today to be the [position] of [university] SOS for the 2012-2013 school year.


Don’t forget-  Students Offering Support has partnered with Princeton Review to help say THANKS for volunteering! What this means is that we have been provided discounts that can be used on all of Princeton Review’s prep courses (LSAT, GSAT, MCAT, or GRE). The discounts are between 15%-40% based on your involvement with SOS for the year.


AND.. for those aspiring accountants, SOS has a national partnership with Ernst & Young, providing you direct access to national recruiters, mentorship opportunities, and a great reference for your application!
