Create student volunteering portal

Who's making it happen


Description


Students new to the city seeking ways to get involved in the local community may lack the personal ties to facilitate desired involvement, especially during busy term times. 

It is part of Oxford SU’s strategy to improve and make accessible services for students balancing school work and a desire for engagement in the community.

Students have self-organized in significant numbers to fundraise for charities and demonstrate a commitment to charity and community life. Students I spoke to as I canvassed during my campaign expressed concern for the local community and a desire to help.

In response the SU is developing a platform to connect students to volunteer opportunities. The portal will be launched in Hillary term!
