Welcome back! We hope you’ve had a restful winter break and if you had exams, we hope they’re a distant memory. Whilst we had anticipated to be back on campus with you this Lent Term, we’ve still put together an awesome collection of events for you to get involved in to kick-start you volunteering in 2021. Need some inspiration? Check out your ambassadors reasons why volunteering should be part of your new years resolution.
Take Action 2021
In Michaelmas we launched a brand new seminar series which explored some of society’s most pressing issues and how we, as the LSE community, can take action. This term is no different, and we’ll be exploring Education Inequality, Food Insecurity and Black Lives Matter. At each event our expert panel of charities, academics and members of the LSE community will discuss the topic, how students can get involved and finish with a Q&A. Sign up on CareerHub!
Afraid you don’t have time to volunteer? Or have you never volunteered before? Why not join one of our one-off volunteering opportunities and meet students from around the school whilst doing something good. Opportunities take up maximum one day, with no further commitment.
The LSE Community Engagement Programme
On January 20th we’ll be starting our brand new programme with 49 students, who will be volunteering their time to complete a consultancy project for 7 different charities! Through teamwork, research and passion our LSE student volunteers will be helping our wider community over Lent Term, stay tuned for updates.
