Description

A Wellbeing  Volunteer is a registered GCU student who gives up some of their time to help organise and deliver our wellbeing campaigns for students. (Campaign topics and dates below). Your role would include attending evening awareness sessions to gain information on each campaign theme and the planned activities and signing up for shifts to run health and wellbeing campaign stalls by engaging with students to share information and encourage participation in questionnaires and activities related to the campaign theme.

Not only will you meet students with similar interests, but through wellbeing volunteering you will learn and develop skills that are essential for graduates in any degree. At the end of the year, all wellbeing volunteers will be invited to a volunteer celebration event and are encouraged to join our flagship Student Leaders Programme.
