How to Set Up a Student-Led Volunteer Project

FXU is here to help those who would like to set up a new Student-Led Project has a small pot of funding to get you started. By setting up or leading one of these projects you can gain leadership, project management, and experience of working in the third sector.

The project can work in partnerships with charity partners and community groups or can be a completely new initiative. It should provide opportunities to get involved with the project on a regular basis, whether as a leader or a volunteer, building up skills and responsibilities.

Such a project is extremely valuable from an employment perspective, as it shows commitment and dedication, as well as a wide range of other unique qualities.

If you would like to set up a Student-Led Volunteering Project you will need to submit an application form to or drop it into the FXU Activities Office.
