Gaining real-world work experience through volunteering is a great way for you to build skills, increase employability, and enjoy a range of other benefits such as:

  • Meeting new people
  • Becoming a leader
  • Giving back to the community
  • Enhancing your CV
  • Improving mental and physical health
  • Working in a team
  • Testing out a career

Community organisations across Southampton are crying out for student volunteers to help deliver programs in all sectors. From health care, business, event management to teaching, the beauty of volunteering is its broad scope, accessibility, and flexibility around your studying and work commitments. And best of all, you often don’t need any specific volunteer skills - just a positive attitude.
