The V.I.P. program, an initiative of the Student Volunteer Bureau (a partnership between the Department of Career Development and Experiential Learning and Memorial University of Newfoundland Students Union), began in 2003 and encourages students to track their volunteer efforts, both on and off campus. The program recognizes three successive levels of achievement, gold, silver, and bronze, each with its own set of criteria. In addition to volunteer hours, participants must take part in activities that will enhance the development of their career path, self-awareness, and leadership abilities.
