Have you been inspired by Student Volunteering Week?
19-25 February is Student Volunteering Week
Volunteering is for everyone, and though it can feel tricky trying to squeeze it in to your studies, there are lots of opportunities that can fit around your timetable, and the benefits are enormous.
We've put some opportunities together that are perfect for students! These roles will allow you to share your experience of being student, and grow you skills for your career or even your course. 80% of employers value volunteering on a CV and almost a quarter of people who volunteered said volunteering helped them get a promotion!
