Volunteering Ideas to get you started:

- Give It A Go Volunteering - Search GIAG on this website and sign up in the Volunteering Office

- One-off events, e.g. Buzz Parties! A local after-school club would like societies to deliver fun activities that bring 60 local primary aged children and local older people together at their community events. The aim is to help them learn about your culture through music, food, craft... Funding and help planning your activity is provided by Sheffield Volunteering. No experience needed! (Ask in the Volunteering Office)

- Volunteering team-builder activities for larger groups - one per society. (Ask in the Volunteering Office)

- 4 Weeks of Action in November (Ask in the Sheffield Volunteering Office) Volunteering is a great way to do some team building as a committee, engage new members in citywide projects and raise the profile of your society - check out our Sheffield Volunteering Guide for Societies in Useful Documents & Forms here.
