RGU:Union's BIG Volunteering Fair

We're hosting our first ever dedicated Volunteering Fair on Thursday 25th of February, as part of the national Student Volunteering Week, so keep the date free as we'll have a huge range of organisations along to chat to all our students and tell them about the exciting volunteering roles they have on offer. 

We have a full house of 40 organisations attending, with opportunities across a huge range or areas, including environmental projects, healthcare, befriending, sports, arts, media, marketing/communications, IT/design, working with young people, older people or vulnerable groups, and much more!

The idea is for students and organisations offering volunteering opportunities to meet face-to-face, as this always works better than seeing an opportunity online or by email. It's a great chance to find out more about the people and the stories behind the many amazing organisations working across the region, and to sign up for volunteering roles to really enhance your skills, confidence and employability. 

For more info on the event you can email Stevie Kearney on volunteering@rguunion.co.uk
