Student Volunteering Week 2021

GOAL: to CELEBRATE VOLUNTEERING!

 
 
 

WHAT's student volunteering week?


It’s a national campaign that brings together educational institutions from all around the UK to organise a weeklong coordinated effort to raise awareness of volunteering and its usefulness to students’ future careers.  Last year, over 60 institutions took part and we came first in the country with the number of events we organised and the number of hours our amazing volunteers logged!

This year, we want to make #SVW2021 bigger and better, so we’d need all of you to get involved. You can jump in any one-off project webinar you want, from doing basic arts and crafts to learning how to improve your CV and be more competitive for jobs. Want to engage in weekly volunteering opportunities? Start now by signing up to a regular project! We also offer workshops that give you your very own certificate at the end and add that extra spark to your CV... Have a look and we’re pretty sure you’ll find something you’ll be itching to try!

Student Volunteering Week is all about celebrating volunteering achievements, getting more people involved in volunteering and helping you guys identify your skills and potential.

Join in our regular projects!


From teaching refugees English to wowing kids with crazy science experiments, VTeam offers 13 active regular projects that happen on a weekly basis. There is also 1 project (Conservation & Sustainability) which has been paused for this term, but we expect it to be back as soon as the situation improves. Whether you're a history buff, a photography enthusiast or a coding expert, a volunteer maven or a total newbie, we've got you: no experience is necessary, just a flare for giving something to the community.

As regular projects require you to attend a safeguarding training on our Moodle page (https://moodle.essex.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=15173and sign a volunteering agreement, register ASAP if you would like to take part in the sessions happening over Student Volunteering Week.
