The importance of playing a full part in University life is as
relevant as ever and Aston students have a proud tradition of
participation, with a strong ‘volunteer culture’.
There are over 80 clubs and societies offering you the chance to
participate in a wide variety of activities – from running the finances
of a sports team, organising an event, coaching football in local
schools, or even DJ-ing one of the club nights.
Aston’s Schools and Colleges Liaison Outreach Office supports the
University’s student volunteering and widening participation
Many of our students volunteer in the local community, working in
schools and colleges as tutors or mentors. Pupils benefit from extra
tuition and attention and schools benefit from an additional resource
in the classroom. As a tutor or mentor you'll gain valuable
transferrable skills, and have a lot of fun!
Our students also work in the local community as Active Community
Engagement volunteers, with a focus on sport, drama, music and the arts.
