Student Volunteering Week 2016 will take place from 22-28 February and it’s the perfect opportunity for you to learn about the wide variety of volunteering roles that you could be a part of!
Volunteering in the local and wider community is the ideal way to make a positive impact on the world around you, whilst allowing you to develop yourself into a more ethical, thoughtful and well-rounded individual.
So, why should you volunteer? Some of our students tell us why:
What was the name of the organisation you volunteered for? Hulme Community Garden Centre (i think this is right … does it count as volunteering for them for that planting day?)
What was your role there?
What skills do you feel you have developed while you volunteered here?
Team work definitely, it was surprising how many people it took to plant a tree and we had to communicate effectively to make sure this was done correctly
I volunteer because… i think it’s important to get involved with the community and help out where possible
