Summer Volunteer Team

This opportunity takes place between 28 Jun 2019 and 05 Sep 2019.

Are you looking for a way to spend a bit of your free time over the summer? Do you want to improve your CV while having fun? Join our summer volunteer team! We have planned a host of fun, casual volunteering opportunities around the campus and local areas, from gardening to minor woodworking. You can get involved in as many or as few activities as you please and can earn some fantastic rewards for your time, as well as make new friends. Travel costs from in and around the Greater Glasgow area will be covered, so there is no reason for you not to take part!
