Student Community Action engages students in community volunteering, providing vulnerable members of the community with social, practical and educational support. They offer a multitude of volunteering opportunities. Several of these projects are managed by Student Community Action and known as “internal projects” which are catered ideally to the interests of Cambridge-based students.
Currently Active Volunteering Roles:
Big Sibling- Volunteers act as an “adopted” older brother or sister to a child, visiting the child about once a week. Please note that this role is currently being done virtually.
Homework Helper- The aim is to help children from mainstream schools who are having difficulty with their academic work. Please note that this role is currently being done virtually.
Taskforce- Students volunteer with a range of clients in the community. They might keep a lonely, elderly person company with a cup of tea and a chat or spend time with an adult who has a disability which has limited their social interaction. Student Community Action have a huge range of clients who are referred to them and would benefit from a student volunteer who can give 1 hour a week. Please note that this role is currently being done virtually.
