Student Volunteering with LIFT OFF

Having students at our events is brilliant for young people. It gives them a sense of what learning after school is really like, from people who are currently right in the middle of it. They paint a realistic picture of student-life, and act as role models for those considering what to do after school. 

There are lots of things for students to get involved with, and our volunteering opportunities are super-flexible, so there's always something to suit most student timetables. The young people we work with really appreciate it too.

  

LIFT OFF Students 2016

 

Here's what some of our volunteers had to say:

 

 'My favourite thing about volunteering with LO; there's probably a few... I like meeting the other volunteers and the staff because everyone gets on so well and has such a laugh together. The other would be speaking to the pupils and hearing their different interests and answering their questions. Each event is always different and there's never a dull moment!' Lizzie Lerpiniere, Abertay University

 

'There are so many things I enjoy about LIFT OFF! On a general level, the knowledge that I am helping kids become more aware of the opportunities that are open to them is a huge factor. On a more personal level, it has allowed me to become more confident in both myself and my choice in degree.' Sheree Taylor, Abertay University
