Active volunteers for 2017/2018
40+ volunteer groups
Every year, hundreds of alumni volunteers support the staff, students and alumni of the University of York.
Our volunteers help us to enhance the student experience and improve career prospects, bring their industry expertise and insights to the curriculum, support the alumni community, and provide valuable strategic advice and guidance to University staff. Your gifts of time and talent help students and alumni prepare for that vital next step on the career ladder.
Volunteering can also be a great way to continue your own personal and professional development, giving you an opportunity to evidence your experience, whilst honing your skills still further.
Several alumni commented on how useful the event was for them, both as a way of finding new career opportunities for themselves, but also as a means of sourcing new talent for their organisations.
