Think Global Act Local
In our interconnected world were facing many global challenges which impact on our local communities. Give a day or more to one of our local volunteering opportunities and youll be helping to create a better world.
Volunteering Taster Sessions
Think Global Act Local volunteering taster sessions give you the opportunity to spend a day making a difference in the local community alongside other students. Youll be able to meet people from a diverse range of backgrounds, and develop your skills and global outlook.
On a taster session you could be doing things like supporting a charity event taking place in the city; getting involved in practical tasks in local green spaces; or helping with reusing and recycling initiatives. Whatever you choose, youll be giving something back whilst having fun. Our friendly Global Community Assistants will be with the group at each session to make sure everyone has a good time.
