Student Volunteering Week

Student Volunteering Week (SVW) 2017 is taking place Monday 20 February - Sunday 26 February. The aim of SVW is to bring together individuals and organisations from across the UK to celebrate the achievements and impact of student volunteers in their local communities; encouraging and inspiring more students to volunteer. This year's theme is Do Good; Feel Good! Showing you the good you can do and that it has positive benefits for yourself as well as the community.

Join us in celebrating the achievements of student volunteers by taking part in The Great Volunteer Thank You. If there is someone who has given their time to make a positive impact on your time at Imperial why not say thank-you? All you need to do is write your message on our thank you postcards which you will find on SVW stalls or complete an online e-postcard!

SVW is the perfect time to give volunteering a go; everyone can take part and there are loads of opportunities to suit all interests! It only takes two minutes to sign up to take part in an SVW activity so why not get involved now? Volunteering makes a HUGE difference to the local community and by giving an hour or two of your time during SVW you can make an impact too!
