LEAPS Volunteering Celebration Evening - Thurs 4th April

As we near the end of the LEAPS volunteering year with only a couple of workshops left, we invite you to attend a LEAPS Volunteering Celebration Evening on Thursday 4th April to celebrate the amazing contributions you have made over the past year. Your work in sharing your experiences as university students with LEAPS pupils has been outstanding and we can’t thank you enough! So, as a small taken of our thanks, we are putting on two evening events on Thursday 4th April which we hope you can join us for. We invite you to attend one or both of these events!

The details…

  • Up first… 5.30-6.30pm: We have teamed up with the University of Edinburgh’s Careers Service* to offer you a great workshop on ‘Making the most of your LEAPS volunteering experience in applications / interviews’. We hope that you have had new experiences and developed a range of skills throughout your time with LEAPS, but don’t forget that these can all be really valuable when it comes to applying for, for example, internships, jobs or even further study. Come along and work with a careers expert on linking your LEAPS experience into making strong applications and being successful at interview.

*Note, we welcome all LEAPS volunteers to attend – you don’t have to be a University of Edinburgh student!

  • Later… 6.45-8pm: A celebration event! This will be an opportunity for us to look back together at the successes of the past year and really just bask in your glory! AND, perhaps most importantly, there will be PIZZA and lots of snacks too. We would love to have the opportunity to spend some time with you all and thank you for all your contributions.

Please RSVP to leapsvolunteers@ed.ac.uk if you would like to attend either one or both of the events on Thursday 4th April. This will help us with planning numbers of attendees. If you plan to come along to the celebration event (6.45-8pm), please do let us know if you have any dietary requirements or allergies! Please note, we invite volunteers who have contributed to at least one LEAPS activity this year (Oct 2018-Mar 2019) to attend (e.g. this could be an in-school workshop, on campus workshop, filming, previous volunteers who have supported a volunteer training session).

We would like to see as many of you there as possible to celebrate the end of a great volunteering year at LEAPS and how awesome you all are!
