1. Complete the registration form
You will need to register with Active Student as your first step to volunteering with us.
Please read through each section of the registration form carefully, and complete as fully as possible.
Email your completed form as a Word document to email@example.com.
Please note that we are unable to access Cloud drives or zip files.
If you are registering as part of a Community Module, please include your Module Code Number in your email subject.
If you are registering in addition to your course, you must include on your registration form at least two volunteering roles (and their organisation names) that you are interested in from the Vacancy Service before we can book you in to meet with us.
2. Meet with an Active Student Project Officer
After you have submitted your registration form you will be invited to meet your Active Student Volunteering Project Officer (VPO). This is an informal meeting to discuss the volunteering you would like to do, and to ensure you are safe and supported during your placement.
Together we will agree the steps needed to get you started.
I arrived here from the Vacancy Service, what do I need to do?
You may have been redirected to this page from one of our voluntary opportunities listed on the Vacancy Service. You will need to register with Active Student as your first step to volunteering with us.
Follow the steps above to complete your registration. Make sure to include details of the opportunities which interest you in the relevant section of the registration form.
I’ve already registered with Active Student. How do I get started?
If you are already registered with Active Student and have had your in-person registration appointment, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you in touch with the VPO on your campus.
How much time do I need to commit?
Active Student offers regular and one-off volunteering opportunities. Placements vary in length and time: some last a couple of hours, days or weeks, but others will require a regular commitment over a year.
What support will I receive?
There is a VPO based on every campus who will support you in all aspects of your volunteering – from your application to the end of your placement. We will be in touch throughout your placement to ensure your experience is enjoyable and beneficial.
What about expenses?
Your travel expenses will be reimbursed.
