Celebrating student volunteering

With Student Volunteering Week running 24th Feb to 2nd March, a report for the National Union of Students says that 725,000 students, almost a third of the student population, currently volunteer and contribute an average of 44 hours a year. Civil Society Media has a link to ‘The Student Volunteering Landscape’ (pdf, 568Kb) from its news item at http://www.civilsociety.co.uk/governance/news/content/16983/.

Voluntary Action History Society has an article ‘Student Volunteering: The Long View’, looking at the history of student community action, http://www.vahs.org.uk/2014/02/student-volunteering/.
