Volunteering and Social Justice Fair

Thu, 20 Sep 2018 13:17:00 BST

The University will be hosting its annual Volunteering and Social Justice Fair on Tuesday 16 October in Academy 1 at Manchester Students' Union.

The Fair is a great chance for students to meet a diverse range of charities and not-for-profit organisations and talk to them face-to-face to find volunteering opportunities to get involved with during their time at university.

Up to 100 different volunteering organisations will be at the Fair from a wide range of sectors including cultural, environmental, health, sport and social inclusion, both from the wider community and within the University and Students’ Union. Each organisation provides a different way for students to get involved in the Manchester community, meet a variety of new people and help tackle important issues within the local and global community.

Students will also be able to find out about the Social Justice Challenge, the Ethical Grand Challenge for second year undergraduates, as well as the other Ethical Grand Challenges and Step Up and Leadership roles, all supporting students to achieve the Stellify Award.

The University's Social Justice Photography Competition will also be launched on the day.
