Welcome to the LEAPS Volunteer Notice Board! Here you will find details of events for LEAPS student volunteers.

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.

Non-live volunteer opportunity - open til 26 April

We are keen to build up a bank of information on 'university degree subjects' and the 'typical student week'. We plan to use this material both for our online and digital work and also to add value to our face-to-face workshops when we return to working in schools next academic year.  If you would like to help you can do so in your own time. There are two things we are looking for.
