Want to make a difference to the world, or looking to get involved with the local community? Then the Volunteering and Social Justice Fair is the place for you!
From Tuesday 20 – Thursday 22 October, you’ll have the opportunity to meet over 60 organisations looking for student volunteers. This year, all of the events will be held online, and the sessions will be split into three different areas:
Tuesday 20 October: Social Inclusion
Wednesday 21 October: Children, Young People & Education
The fair will give you the chance to speak to a huge variety of charities and not-for-profit organisations via Zoom, and you’ll be able to find hundreds of different opportunities. Each organisation provides a different way for you to get involved in the Manchester community and meet a variety of new people. Not only are you helping shape society, you’ll develop lots of new skills and make plenty of new friends.
If you’re interested in volunteering, it’s important to register for the Volunteer Hub, where there are plenty of opportunities available to you either from home or in person.
At the fair, you will also have the chance to find out more about the Ethical Grand Challenges, including the Social Justice Challenge, the Workplace Ethics Challenge, and the roles that count towards ‘Step Up and Lead’. All of these opportunities are designed to help you achieve the Stellify Award, which you can find out more about here.
The University’s Social Justice Photography Competition will also be launched on the day – the competition is an exciting opportunity for you to raise awareness of a social justice issue that matters to you.
