Every year, thousands of University of York students volunteer to support a cause they care about, build their skills and discover the city of York. 

Each semester, roles are available with varying levels of commitment, so you can find an opportunity to suit you and your timetable.

Sign up to our mailing list in Handshake to find out more about applying for available opportunities or email us at volunteering@york.ac.uk

Read our blogs for an insight into what you could do and to hear from other students who have volunteered to make a difference in the community. Find updates on X (formerly Twitter) and Instagram.
