Student volunteers are changing lives

What you learn at Birmingham can help make the world a better place. Hundreds of students are putting their passions into action on key social issues, such as loneliness, poverty, homelessness and healthcare.

Students regularly volunteer to support their communities, from litter picking to working with charities such as first aiders St John Ambulance and eating disorder charity BEAT.

For students, it is a chance to try new things, get valuable experience for their CV, explore the complexities of key issues and make a difference in their area. And having discovered volunteering at University, many keep on helping others as graduates.

You can also volunteer as a mentor using your skills and experience to help students build their personal and professional journey.
