Volunteering Week 2018

Student Volunteering Week 2018 falls on Monday 19th - Friday 23rd February. There are many opportunities for you as students to get involved with volunteering opportunities at the University of Greenwich.

We're aware that students at Greenwich do loads of fantastic things outside their course, and volunteering is a wonderful way to enhance your CV and really does make you stand out from the crowd when it comes to employability. For your hard work, we at the SU believe you should be recognised for it and with the help of the Greenwich Student Certificate for Volunteering (GSCV) you are able to be given genuine and accredited recognition.  To find out more about them follow: https://www.suug.co.uk/volunteer/awards/gscv/

Student Volunteering Week enables you to kick start your volunteering career and do this alongside likeminded people. See the dates below to find out what we have planned for you here at the Students' Union.
