Here at YUSU, you can get involved in volunteering in three ways:
Take a look at our student-led volunteering projects below, that work with children and young people, conservation, the arts and much more!
If you’d like to set up a new project, please take a look at the 'How to start a volunteering project' document here.
Want to find other ways to get involved in volunteering? Check out the university's opportunities here.
2. One-off opportunities
Tight on time but want to give back? Not to worry, we have plenty of one-off opportunities that occur throughout the year for you to get involved in. Check out our Give it a Go schedule or get in touch with your volunteering officers, Chris and Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org, to sign up to their mailing list.
3. College Volunteering
Most colleges at the University of York provide volunteering opportunities for their students, either through projects that each college committee sets up, or through their local charity partner. This changes year on year, so please get in touch with your college to find out more!
