The volunteering section is all about doing something that will make a difference to other people’s lives. Whether that’s helping out at a school club or fund raising for a charity, the list of things that students could help out with is endless. If students don’t want to volunteer for a pre-existing organisation they could always set something up with a group of friends and create something completely new.
