Genuinely one of the greatest things about this job is getting to work with the thousands of committed and enthusiastic volunteers that we have within Imperial College Union. I am constantly blown away by the amazing things that our student make happen - everything from the first UK semi-finals of the ICCAs to bringing bungee jumping and fire walks to campus, raising thousands of pounds for charity in the process! Next week is Student Volunteering Week and as part of this I'd like to extend to you the opportunity to help us say thank you to the incredible team of student volunteers by taking part in The Great Volunteer Thank You.
If you have someone that's made a really positive impact on your time here at Imperial this is a great chance to say thank you to them. All you need to do is write your message on our thank you postcards (which you can find on SVW stalls or in SAC) or complete an online e-postcard. We will collate all thank you messages and send them out to volunteers at the end of Student Volunteering Week (which will be going on all of next week Monday 23 February - Sunday 1 March).
Student Volunteering week will also have a whole series of events going on for you to get involved in, aiming to bring together individuals and organisations from across the UK to celebrate the achievements and impact of student volunteers in their local community. The week will be a great chance to give volunteering a go - everyone can take part and there will be a whole load of opportunities available to you. Find out what's going on here.
Equally, if you're one of the team of amazing volunteers that we have here, have you thought about standing in the Big Elections? There are over 400 positions available and whatever you're interested in there's probably a role that you'd be amazing for. You can find more information here.
