LEAPS Volunteering: Update

The LEAPS volunteering programme normally runs each year from November to March but due to Covid-19 we have been unable to run any school workshops or events involving Student Volunteers in November or December. However, we will be delivering online workshops and events for our schools from February to May 2021. They will be open to all registered LEAPS volunteers. Forthcoming school workshops and events from February to May will be posted here on our online Volunteer Noticeboard, as and when we confirm the events with our schools.  All registered LEAPS volunteers will receive an email to alert them to any new events posted. Our first workshops to be deliverd will be our S6 'Unicafe' workshop which will run on selected dates from from 23 February to 12 March. That will be followed by our S3 online workshop from approximately 15 March to 1 April. Our final workshops for this academic year will be our S4 online workshop which will run from roughly 20 April to 28 May.  If you are a registered LEAPS volunteer and would like to sign up for any of the online workshops or events please email the Volunteer Team on leapsvolunteers@ed.ac.uk. Likewise, if you have any queries about volunteering please get in touch.  We look forward to hearing from you!

NEW TO LEAPS VOLUNTEERING?

If you are new to LEAPS volunteering but keen to get involved, you would need to attend an online 'LEAPS Volunteer Information and Training Session'. This doesn't commit you to volunteering – it's more a case of taking part to see if you think it's the kind of volunteer opportunity you are looking for.  Unfortunately these online sessions have now taken place for this academic year but the next Volunteer Training and Information sessions will take place in October 2021 where we hope we will see a return to delivering workshops and events in schools and on university campus. Please check back here Join Us  in mid-September for an update on when training events will be taking place in October and how you can book your place. Alternatively you can register your interest now by emailing leapsvolunteers@ed.ac.uk.
