University Of Bedfordshire Volunteering
In the 2014/2015 academic year, University of Bedfordshire students donated 42,000 hours volunteering across various projects across the local community.
Volunteering is a great way to give something back to the community, meet new people and learn new skills, increasing your employability and helping you to stand out from the crowd.
Build your confidence and increase your employability
All of our volunteering projects are managed through the Students’ Union. It’s easy to get involved – just set up a profile, telling us a little bit about yourself, including your interests and availability and we’ll match you to opportunities that can work alongside your current commitments.
You can then browse through what’s available and contact the organisations that most interest you!
Past volunteers have stated that volunteering in projects has helped to build their confidence and self-esteem. Many of the projects also include some form of training, which can help to improve your CV and teach you transferrable skills.
Our volunteers also receive a certificate from the SU to recognise the hard work and dedication that they have provided.
