Virtual Volunteering Fair

Welcome to the Volunteering Fair 2020!


Warwick Volunteers offers a wide variety of projects and opportunities for you to get involved with, including teaching, ecological conservation, technology, projects with the elderly and even one-off opportunities that you can fit into your busy schedules.

Personally in my first and second years, I got involved with Student Tutoring, a project where you get the chance to go into schools and work with children in a wide variety of subjects, as well as working with the Warwick Volunteers Exec for 2 years as Publicity/Events Officer, and now President. Honestly, my time with Warwick Volunteers was the highlight of my university experience and I would sincerely encourage all Warwick students to give it a go - we've got something for everyone!

The fair includes only a selection of opportunities you can get involved in. You can find more information about all our projects using the project search tool.

Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions ahead of/during the event!
