Student Volunteering Week

The 11-19 February sees the return of the University's Student Volunteering Week – a national celebration of all things volunteering. The University of Manchester and University of Manchester Students’ Union have teamed up again to recognise our student volunteers and to encourage those who don’t already volunteer, to give it a go.

Wednesday 13 February is our Big Volunteer Day! This year we will be cleaning, greening and brightening up alleys in Moss Side. Take a look at this video to see what we got up to in a previously!

Across Student Volunteering Week there will also be a variety of information sessions and opportunities to get advice about volunteering both locally and overseas, so that any student can give volunteering a go and find the perfect opportunity for them.

During the week we’ll also be distributing around 2,700 thank you cards and badges to show our appreciation to all of our incredible volunteers. We will be encouraging students and staff to share their ‘Thank Yous’ on Twitter, using the hash tag #SVW2019, so you can keep up to date with some of the students receiving cards throughout the week.
