What is volunteering?
At Chesterfield College, there are so many opportunities to get involved in volunteering to really make a difference to the local community. Volunteering is flexible, making it easier for you to get involved.
Why should I volunteer?
Volunteering looks great on your CV and is also a fantastic way to be one step ahead when completing your UCAS application. Bening a volunteer can also help you to:
- Make new friends
- Have fun
- Gain new skills
- Keep busy and active
- Give something back to the community
Where can I volunteer?
We work with a number of local charities and organisations who are looking for volunteers throughout the year. From stewarding at events to gardening, there are so many volunteering opportunities available.
How can I get involved?
The Xtra team can help support you through your volunteer journey. Pop in to the Wellbeing Hub to have a chat with a member of the team – we can help you decide which opportunities are suitable for you.
We also hold regular volunteer meetings once a month during Friday lunchtime (12.15-1pm) to look at the opportunities available. Don’t worry if you’re not in college on Fridays – you can keep in touch with what’s going on through our student message boards and volunteer notices.
