Finding the right volunteering opportunity can give you the chance to put the knowledge and skills from your course into practice, or to learn new skills additional to those from your course programme. As a volunteer you will also build memories and develop leadership and teamwork skills to apply to your future career and personal life.
Volunteering is also a great way to show future employers that you have experience in a working environment.
Why volunteer via CitySA?
Accessing volunteering through the SAs Volunteering HUB ensures that you are getting involved in an opportunity that will be relevant, rewarding and safe.
The SA follows good practice to ensure that our volunteers will have all that they need for successful volunteering. Each volunteer will have access to the following:
Tailored adverts for volunteering opportunities
Volunteer Handbook, which also includes a Volunteer Wellbeing Guide
Appropriate induction and training for your volunteering opportunity
Additional workshops and training opportunities throughout the year
Ongoing support from our Volunteer Development Officer for all your volunteering needs
Using the Volunteer Hub, you will be automatically part of the Volunteer Reward scheme that recognises the efforts you demonstrate as you progress through your volunteer experience. You will be able to download a record of your hours and skills logged, which is a great way to demonstrate what you have gained through your volunteering.
