Jump IN is an all-encompassing programme, which supports you in every stage of your volunteering journey. Whether you are a seasoned volunteer, or looking for your first role, Jump IN is there for you.
From volunteering fairs for those just starting out or looking for something new to training sessions and expert Q&As for those more experienced in volunteering, we ensure you can build the networks, skills and confidence you need to progress in your voluntary role and enhance your employability skills.
We provide sessions around leadership, volunteer management, fundraising, influencing, communication, conflict resolution and much, much more.
Alternatively, if you have got a charitable or voluntary idea of your own, we can provide you with the guidance you need to set up and structure your project for maximum impact. We can also introduce you to key contacts that can help your project succeed.
Registration open throughout the academic year.
