Volunteer

Nightlines are run almost entirely by volunteers and they’re always looking for student volunteers who can offer their time to support their fellow students.

Being a volunteer for Nightline is challenging, rewarding and inspiring – Nightline stands apart from many other student activities which are often social or recreational. Through intensive training you will develop strong communication skills including active listening, and if you take on a committee role you can gain a wealth of experience including:

  • Management
  • Team leadership
  • Training
  • PR and marketing
  • Fundraising
  • Budgeting and administration
  • Recruitment
  • IT
