We're your Southend Volunteering Team

VTeam is the volunteering team of your Student's Union. Our goal is to ensure you gain transferable skills for the future while helping the community. We offer various types of regularone-off, and online projects you can volunteer with and cover all your costs for traveling or equipment. We are always very eager to help any interested ambitious students start their own unique projects! You can also become a part of our Regular Projects Committee to be more involved in the inner workings of the projects. There are many more opportunities waiting for you, and the best part is that all the VTeam services are completely free and part of your SU membership. Partying Face
