Get Involved on Campus!


Are you interested in working with YOUR Students' Union?

YFS provides a variety of services, campaigns and events to ensure that our members enjoy and are satisfied with their university experience. We are always looking for new volunteers to lend a hand. The RedPack program is made up of students whose interest range from outreach and promotions, event planning and execution, and campaign work and advocacy.

The YFS RedPack aim to give undergraduate students the opportunity to get involved in a diverse range of campaigns and events. Without the impressive skills and commitment of our RedPack the execution of bigger and better events and campaigns could not be possible!

Being part of the RedPack will allow you to develop skills and make connections with other student leaders, and engage with the York community in a number of ways.

How we work together (YorkFest)

RedPack Ambassador:

A RedPack Ambassador is essential to the overall execution of YorkFest. Ambassadors are responsible for assisting and reporting to Team Leads of their group. Ambassadors are vital in implementing the logistics of YorkFest to ensure the week runs smoothly. 

RedPack Team Lead:

The RedPack Team Lead is integral to the success of YorkFest. Team Leads are responsible for their group of ambassadors and being the front line of communication with the YorkFest Coordinators and RedPack Organizers. Team Leads serve as a good resource for guidance to all RedPack Ambassadors.
