Warwick Volunteers Reward and Recognition

When you complete 5 hours or more of volunteering activities with Warwick Volunteers over the academic year, you will receive a Warwick Volunteers certificate.

These forms of recognition are available to all levels of study

Only hours accrued this academic year are included. This includes time spent travelling to your activity, planning lessons/activities, creating resources, attending training courses and volunteer meetings for the project you have volunteered on. The volunteering activity should make up a minimum 75% of the total hours.

To receive a certificate you will need to:

1. Register with an opportunity listed on our website
2. When accepted as a volunteer you will see the opportunity listed in the Log Hours section where you can add the hours that you volunteer
3. We will check the hours you submit with the Project Leader or the key contact for your volunteering activity.
4. Once you achieve 5 or more hours you will be able to download your certificate from the website. As a bonus for logging 15 or more hours, you can also collect a free WV water bottle bottle by popping into the office (subject to availability).
