UCLan Volunteering Fair 2015

UCLan's Centre for Volunteering and Community Leadership (CVCL) is hosting the 'UCLan Volunteering Fair 2015' during February.

CVCL has invited a variety of Trusts, Charities and other organisations onto campus to talk to students about volunteering, the benefits of volunteering and the opportunities they may have that students can apply for. The event is open to all students (Home, EU and International).

There is also a launch of the Graduate Volunteering Programme, and students who are graduating this year can visit the fair to ask more about the programme.

CVCL is dedicated to supporting UCLan students for up to 12 months after graduating in volunteering roles, providing advice, guidance, training and bespoke projects which they can get involved with to hopefully improve and boost their employability prospects.

The event takes place on Thursday, 26th February, 11.00-15.00, Foster Building.
