    VOLT Volunteer Program Founders

    Langara Alumni & Current Employee | Volunteer Advocates

    Jade Arignon, Warren Springer, and Clayton Munro are the trio behind the creation of Langara’s remarkable VOLT Student Volunteer program. Started while Jade and Warren were still students at Langara and championed by Clayton, the Dean of Student Services, VOLT’s mandate was to create community engagement, social awareness, and student development through volunteerism. Proud VOLT volunteers are now a fixture at every Langara event, welcoming and helping fellow students onto campus; creating change by leading Langara neighbourhood clean ups; and supporting dozens of off-campus organizations, including the Greater Vancouver Food Bank and the Metro Vancouver Parks. Since its humble beginnings in 2010, the program has grown by leaps and bounds to include over 3,000 student volunteers, generate more than 73,000 volunteer hours, and engage an entire generation of students to learn new skills, gain experience, and give back to the community.

  • Lawrence Warren

    Lawrence Warren

    Retired Employee | Langara Pioneer

    Lawrence played an instrumental role in Langara becoming an independent College in 1994. Larry was President of the Langara Faculty Association (LFA) through almost all of the 1990s, including during the strike of Nov/Dec 1992. It was Larry’s political acumen and leadership that led the LFA to decide that this was the time to persuade the VCC Board and President to support the independence of Langara. They joined efforts to convince the provincial government to agree to the change, and Langara College was born. Larry also continued the LFA tradition of positive collaboration with management and established an excellent relationship with the new Langara College leadership and Board of Governors going forward.
