Student Volunteering Week 2020

Monday 10 February 2020
midnight - 11:59pm University of Plymouth Campus

Student Volunteering Week is a national campaign that celebrates the impact student volunteers make across the country, recognising their hard work and achievements and encouraging others to get involved.

During this years Student Volunteering Week, here at UPSU, we will have two themes running:

  • Celebrating Student Volunteering
    Celebrating everything student volunteers do, whether that is volunteering in the community or through UPSU School and Course Reps, Student Trustees, Part-Time Officers, Peer to Peer Trainers, Student Led Volunteering, Give-it-A-Go, BARS, Societies, Sports Clubs, RAG and many more. Have a story to tell about your volunteering, the positive change it has made to you or the impact it's had on others? Contact us at
  • Getting Out There
    We want to make it a positive week with a wide range of opportunities, provided by a wide range of student groups, community partners and individuals. Come and talk to us about your ideas.
