Volunteer in a team with other students to deliver a project in the local community.
These projects are led by a student project leader, and as a team you will plan, fundraise and deliver the project. There is a large variety of projects to choose from, for example, delivering history workshops in schools, running large scale events, or delivering cooking classes in the community. Full training is provided, and each team is supported by a member of staff member.
All of the team projects require a Project Leader. This a student volunteer who will lead the project and team from start to finish! If you would like to develop your leadership, communication, delegation skills and much more, then why not consider applying to be a Project Leader? We have a fun, free training weekend to equip you with the skills and confidence to lead your team. If you are interested and would like to know more, e-mail email@example.com or click here.
Volunteer with a local organisation.
We have selected a number of fantastic local organisations where you can volunteer. Slightly different to the team projects, you will volunteer alone, or with a couple of others, and decide on the days and times in agreement with the organisation. These opportunities include mentoring in secondary schools, helping out at a local farm, assisting children with literacy in primary schools and joining a local ‘Futsal’ team!
Just turn up and volunteer for a few hours or for a whole day in the community.
Look out for our one-off opportunities throughout the year! We have lots of exciting things for you to get involved in, so if you’ve got a few spare hours, why not try something new? Examples of one-off opportunities include woodland conservation, making Christmas decorations for a local Christmas party and assisting with community events throughout the year.
If you have an idea for a volunteering project then we want to hear from you! Many of our existing projects first developed from the ideas of our students, so no matter how big or small, share them with us! If you have an idea for a project, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and Rich will get back to you to arrange a chat.
Ever thought about volunteering for a fundraising event? You can get involved with SHU RAG – a group of students who put on fundraising events for the SHU RAG charities.
