Benefits of volunteering

Stories of students just like you who, through volunteering, have made significant contributions not only to their own development but also for the benefit of society and the creation of a better world for us all.

For many more personal stories about what our students have gained download our Volunteering Stories booklet (PDF)

When we give some of our time, skill and energy as volunteers, we not only help valuable causes and people around us; we also take away plenty of invaluable experience from our activities:

  • Gain confidence
  • Make a difference in the community
  • Develop new contacts/friends
  • Learn new life and professional skills
  • Take on a challenge
  • Have fun!
