The Gauntlet / Volunteer - The Gauntlet

Volunteer for the Gauntlet!

The Gauntlet would not be able to publish without the contributions of volunteers. University of Calgary students produce the entirety of the Gauntlet, and while we have 12 paid staff that help run various areas of the publication, volunteers are invaluable to our day-to-day operations.

Volunteers at the Gauntlet must first complete a volunteer orientation with our volunteer coordinator. You can reach the team to schedule an orientation at volunteer@thegauntlet.ca. After this, you can receive story-list emails from editors detailing assignments you can take on, from story-writing to taking photos to creating illustrations. We also hold pitch meetings weekly if you want to meet with editors face-to-face to pitch stories or pick up assignments.

If this all sounds scary to you, don’t worry — every editor and contributor at the Gauntlet started in your shoes as well, and we can walk you through exactly what you need to do. You’ll get the hang of it, we promise!
