Volunteering

You are here:

Volunteering is not only doing something that benefits others but it is also a great way to get to know people, learn new things, gain experience in what interests you and get involved in something you care about.

 

Every year, our members volunteer their time in both the local community and within the institution itself. Students are engaged in a wide variety of projects, working with organisations such as Chiltern Rangers, the Wycombe Environment Centre and Hearing Dogs for the deaf.

There are lots of projects to get involved with and volunteering is extremely beneficial for students. We recognise volunteering through hours of 25, 50 and 100 and students who reach these targets will recieve a certificate. Students who reach 100 hours will have their certificates signed by the Vice Chancellor and will have the chance to recieve a personal reference by the Volunteer Coordinator.

For more information and to get involved, contact volunteering@bucks.ac.uk

Volunteering has so many benefits including:

  • + many more

 

We offer short-term volunteering, one-off and adhoc opportunities, long-term volunteering and placement opportunities.

We recognise and reward our volunteers with certificates of achievements for 25, 50 and 100 hours completed.

These certificates can be proof for employers in your future careers.
