AberSU Student Volunteering
If you are looking to volunteer during your time here at Aberystwyth, then you’ve come to the right place! Whether it’s regularly volunteering in the community, a one-off action day or a student project; there are no shortage of opportunities for you to choose from!
AberSU defines student volunteers as anyone who freely gives up their time in an unpaid role to benefit others or the environment. As a volunteer you can really make a difference, and that warm, gooey feeling of satisfaction, knowing you have helped someone or something is hard to beat!
Reasons for Volunteering
Not only can volunteering be rewarding and make a difference, but it can also be a fantastic opportunity for personal development outside of your studies.
Here’s our top 5 reasons to volunteer:
- Gain or develop skills, knowledge, experience
- Try something different or do something you’ve never done before
- Improve health, happiness and confidence
- Enhance your CV and employability
- Gain accreditation or recognition (HEAR & Aber Award)
The type of volunteering and the amount of time you give up outside of your studies is completely up to you. But you’re also not restricted to just one volunteering opportunity! The more you do, the more benefits you will gain, so get involved!
