Student Volunteering Week 2022

Join us 7th-13th February to celebrate student volunteering in all forms! You'll have the chance to meet our team, talk all things volunteering, try out volunteering taster sessions, information sessions, talks, workshops, and explore what you're passionate about.

Are you a volunteer? Would you like to volunteer, but aren't sure where to start? This Student Volunteering Week, we want to celebrate our amazing student volunteers and inspire more people to get involved in volunteering across Sheffield and South Yorkshire.

There are so many reasons to become a volunteer - from buiding your CV and gaining new skills, to meeting new people, exploring the city and helping out in the community. This Student Volunteering Week, we're challenging you to think about what you could do to get involved!


Sheffield Hallam student volunteers inspire us, and so we wanted to share some of their stories this week. Watch the video below to hear from students who have been involved with volunteering over the last year, as they tell us what volunteering means to them.

Last year saw the launch of our new brokerage system, which now hosts over 60 opportunities and 41 local and national organisations hand picked for Sheffield Hallam students. We are also partnered with local organisation Voluntary Action Sheffield, who offer over 200 volunteering opportunities.

Why not be a course rep?

Did you know being a Course Rep is volunteering? Every student can volunteer to be a Course Rep and help raise the voices of their coursemates. If you want to make a difference, problem solve, bring new ideas for change, or just see more 'behind the scenes' of how your course runs, this is the role for you.

To be a Course Rep all you need to do is sign up and we will get in touch about your training, which teaches you everything you could possibly need to know.

You can sign up by filling in a short form at hallamstudentsunion.com/reps. Can't see a form? Please make sure you're logged in to the SU website first.

To find out more about volunteering, book an appointment with our Volunteering team or drop them an email at volunteering@shu.ac.uk.
