Every year, thousands of University of York students volunteer so why not join them! Roles are available every term with a range of commitments for any students to get involved, from projects and placements to one-off activities.
Covid-19 update: Face to Face volunteer roles are checked to be line with current social distancing guidance and there are an increased number of remote volunteer opportunities. If you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Inspire young people and gain classroom experience by volunteering in schools or running your own school workshops.
Join one of 18 student-led projects, give volunteering a go with micro-volunteering or fundrasing with RAG.
Each term we promote roles with charities across York, for causes such as sustainability, heritage, health and wellbeing.
The University Community Fund offers grants of £500 to £5000, plus support to make your ideas for student and community initiatives happen. Open to staff and students all year round.
