Do you need volunteers?
Could your organisation benefit from a student volunteer to help with a specific project or the more general running of your organisation?
We promote volunteering opportunities for local community, not-for-profit and public sector organisations. Through Active Student your opportunities will reach students who want to volunteer in addition to their studies, as well as those who are doing a community engagement placement module as a part of their course.
Why work with Active Student?
- We are committed to good practice in the recruitment and retention of volunteers.
- We aim to promote safe and supported volunteering opportunities, and provide support and guidance to organisations.
- We support students throughout their volunteering.
- We are based across all university campuses - Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings.
- We work with a large number of students who have a wide range of skills, experience and degree backgrounds.
- We also work with university staff members who are looking to get involved in local community volunteering.
Please note: we cannot guarantee that you will receive volunteers from us, but we will advertise your opportunity to our students. We do not promote internships or previously paid roles.
