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. However due to Covid-19 we have been unable to run any school workshops or events involving Student Volunteers in November or December. However, we plan to restart workshops and activities for our schools from February to May 2021. At this stage we are unsure if we will be able to deliver any of our workshops in schools and on university campus, as we have done in the past, or if we will be delivering all of our workshops and support virtually this academic year. However, no matter what the format, we are very much looking forward to working with new and returning LEAPS volunteers from February 2021!


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.  These online sessions will take place in late January/early February 2021. More detailed information including dates and times will be posted on our Join Us pages from early January.


If you have previously volunteered with LEAPS and are keen to get involved again in 2021 we will email you in late January/early February to ask you to re-register as a volunteer for 2021 by completing a quick online form.  Following your re-registration with LEAPS, we'll then keep you updated by posting any forthcoming workshops and events - virtual or otherwise - here from late February to May. We'll alert you by email once we post any new events and keep you updated with briefings on any new workshop formats. If you want to sign up for any events you would just email us in the normal way at leapsvolunteers@ed.ac.uk. We look forward to welcoming you back very soon but if you have any queries in the meantime please just get in touch by email.
