Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, improve your self confidence, meet new people and build your CV. We can help you to get involved in local community, charity and voluntary projects which will add to your experience of life and help you to develop valuable skills.
Volunteering MMU has a wide range of opportunities for students to get involved in. To find out more, take a look at the types of volunteering opportunities available to you.
Volunteering can be your first step towards applying for the MMU Professional Passport.
We believe in recognising the amazing things volunteers do and encourage students to record information about their experience that can then be used in their application for the MMU Professional Passport.
The MMU Professional Passport will help you to consider all your attributes and skills in a new employment-focused way so that you learn how to promote them in a professional manner and so, hopefully, persuade future employers to give you the job.
Recording your activity can also be used to support your personal development and provide evidence of the extra curricula activity that employers look for in graduates. It will also help you to recognise the positive impact you are making through the time you spend volunteering.
Volunteering MMU hosted MMU’s first International Volunteering Fair on Thursday 31st January in the Geoffrey Manton Atrium.
Over the years, there has been an increase in overseas volunteering and as such, it is a growing market in both complexity & variety. When considering overseas volunteering students may become overwhelmed and find it difficult to ensure they secure a fair and ethical experience. Sarah Roberts the Volunteer Coordinator felt the need to offer students a selection of well-presented and ethical organisations, that both offer exceptional experiences & rewards for the students at a fair price, but also, ensure that the work students do benefits the local communities.
Look at our short video to listen to what the organisations had to say.
17 organisations attended. Kaya Responsible Travel in Manchester found the ‘students to be well prepared and asked key questions, all of which demonstrates that they had done their research’.
