EPAfrica Volunteering

EPAfrica is recruiting committed students to spend 10 weeks in East Africa in summer 2019 investing time and money in one of our partner schools. Living and working in a rural community, our volunteers develop essential transferable skills whilst experiencing vibrant Kenyan or Ugandan culture. Working in teams of 2 or 3, volunteers collaborate with their school’s various stakeholders to improve the quality of education offered. Focusing on the sustainability of their interventions, they invest in new educational resources, small infrastructure projects and schemes to improve students’ health and welfare.

CHOP Reps

One thing that many people are struck by when they arrive in Cambridge is how prevalent homelessness is here. Cambridge Homeless Outreach Programme (CHOP) is a student society which works to provide students with opportunities to fundraise, volunteer and support the homeless community in the city. CHOP is recruiting college reps to promote events in each college and run their own mini events, such as collections and bake sales. If you’re interested please email yg321@cam.

Volunteering with the Scouts

11th / 9th Cambridge is a local scout group based in Newnham, about 5–10 mins from Queen’s College, within easy walking or cycling distance. We’re an active group with five meetings a week Mondays–Thursdays (Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and Explorers) and two to three camping trips a year. The aims of Scouting are to provide fun, challenge and adventure, which can result in you organising and taking part in a range of different activities from hikes, wide games and cooking over open fires, to making smoke bombs, go-karts, and learning circus skills.
