    University Student Mentor

    IntoUniversity

    This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

    Volunteer mentors support young people from disadvantaged areas of Coventry to achieve their academic, social and future goals.

    Established in 2002, IntoUniversity works to raise the aspirations and attainment of young people in socially disadvantaged areas. We have 32 centres and extension projects across England, that provide Academic Support, primary and secondary school workshops, university application support and mentoring for young people. Our Coventry Centre, opened in 2018, in partnership with the University of Warwick and already has made a massive difference to the lives of hundreds of young people.

    We have an exclusive opportunity for University of Warwick students to act as mentors in supporting our young people to achieve their academic, social and future goals. You will meet at least once every two weeks for 1-15.hrs based on you and your mentee’s shared availability.

    Acting as a role model, you will support their learning, increase their knowledge of university and boost their confidence. Providing 1:1 support you will see the young person develop over the year, evidencing your contribution to their future success.

    Mentors will gain skills in leadership, communication and problem solving while making a real difference to the life chances of their mentee. This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in working in education or who would like to gain experience working with young people

    Scouting Leader

    Coventry Scouts

    This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

    Scout leaders help children and young people take part in a wide range of activities

    You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to join us. You don’t need to have been a Scout when you were younger. You don’t even need to know how to put up a tent. Our door is open to people of all ages, genders, races and backgrounds, and we’re only able to change lives because people like you lend a hand. We’re talking about tea makers, tidy-uppers and skill sharers. We’re talking about mini bus drivers and first aiders. We’re talking about students who want to boost their CV, and parents who volunteer so they can spend more time together as a family.

    Whatever your skillset, lend a hand for as little or as much time as you can spare, and we promise you’ll get more out than you put in. Because whether you’re helping a leader to run an activity in the local town hall, organising a night away, or buttering 120 slices of bread a group of very hungry eleven year olds - no two Scout meetings are the same. The difference you make, though, is always great.

    We provide the training. You show up, get stuck in, and make memories for life.

    As long as you're over 18, you can help out as an adult volunteer in Scouting.

We offer food and company for homeless and vulnerably-housed members of our community, all year round. Our service has changed since the Covid-19 pandemic, and we are currently offering a soup kitchen service on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening. Prior to the pandemic, we were also able to offer overnight accomodation.

    We rely heavily on Warwick University students to be able to run our service, and we have a really lovely student community volunteering with us. There are a number of shifts to help with including: general evening shifts, catering shifts, baking rota and supermarket collections. Our volunteering opportunities are advertised on our easy-to-use SignUp platform, and volunteers are welcome to sign up to the shifts that suit them!

    We would really love to see you at the shelter soon :)

    Missing Maps

    Warwick Volunteers - From home volunteering

    This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

    Helping to map remote areas of the world via a volunteer-driven open data mapping platform

    Each year, disasters around the world kill nearly 100,000 and affect or displace 200 million people. Many of the places where these disasters occur are literally 'missing' from any map and first responders lack the information to make valuable decisions regarding relief efforts. Missing Maps is an open, collaborative project in which you can help to map areas where humanitarian organisations are trying to meet the needs of vulnerable people.
