Connect Across Cultures: Volunteer as a FIUTS Facilitator

FIUTS Facilitators - SUM 17

FIUTS (the Foundation for International Understanding Through Students) is an organization that supports cross-cultural understanding and leadership for UW’s global community, including international and American students. FIUTS depends on the generosity and passion of our volunteers to help accomplish our goals. Volunteering is a great opportunity to learn intercultural leadership skills and make new friends. The time commitment is flexible; facilitators can choose when and how often they facilitate.

As a FIUTS facilitator, you will receive cross-cultural leadership training and gain valuable volunteer experience leading programs and events including International Welcome Weeks in September, when you can help welcome more than 2,400 new students from around the world to the UW and Seattle! Facilitators also have the opportunity to participate in year-round activities such as K-12 education outreach, events and activities, and more.

Volunteer opportunities are open to current UW students – U.S., international, undergrads, grads, scholars and IELP students. Facilitators need to complete a short application and attend one of our regularly scheduled New Facilitator Orientations. Upcoming New Facilitator Orientations are scheduled for July 21, August 9, August 15, and September 7. See the FIUTS calendar for times and locations.
