Community engagement opportunities for the graduated students

Engaging in community service provides students with the opportunity to become active members of their community and has a lasting, positive impact on society at large. Community service or volunteerism enables students to acquire life skills and knowledge, as well as provide a service to those who need it most.


Personal health and well being

Our main purpose is spending time to help others and being generous with our time can help to boost self-confidence, Self-Reliance and establish new relationships, both of which contribute to personal wellbeing, particularly in relation to depression and mental health.


New skills and opportunities

Opportunities to expand your mind don’t have to be constrained to your work; they can come from social projects on your doorstep too. Whether it’s befriending the elderly or working with vulnerable children, volunteering can develop new skills and unlock new experiences.


We can make a positive difference to another person

When you volunteer, you give your energy and skills to help other people. No matter how or where you volunteer, whether at a food bank, hospital, youth centre, school, senior home, or animal shelter, you can make a difference in your community. All you have to do is complete a quick search online to find the right volunteer opportunity near you where you can give back to your community in a big way.
Volunteering can have a direct impact on individual lives. Our volunteers are matched with individual adults and young people with whom attended our activities regularly and build a bond.  It’s because of this personal and direct relationship that our volunteers can see is the very tangible difference their time and effort is making to one particular new life.
