Warwick Volunteers offers you the chance to make a positive difference in the local community. From working in local schools to helping with conservation projects or befriending adults with learning disabilities, there’s a wide range of volunteering projects to get involved with.
Warwick Volunteers can help you find a project that matches your interests – and if there isn’t, you can create and manage your own volunteering project through the Create a Project Competition.
Some projects, such as the school-based projects, require you to register in Term 1. Others run throughout the year and you can join them anytime.
Even if you’re short on time, you can still join in! Many one-off and short term projects take place throughout the year, giving you the chance to volunteer without having to make a big commitment. It’s a chance to try something new or simply squeeze some volunteering into your busy student schedule.
Many Sports Clubs and Societies also choose to volunteer as a group - why not encourage yours to get involved?
What will you gain?
Volunteering is an enjoyable way to develop new skills, acquire vital work experience and increase your overall employability, whatever career path you want to pursue. It also helps you making new friends, getting involved in the community around campus and to increase your wellbeing.
Warwick Volunteers Exec also organises many socials throughout the year to bring all the student volunteers together.
