Tens of thousands of students around the country will take part in a week of social action in February, as SVW enters its eighteenth year!
From 11 - 17 February 2019 Student Volunteering Week will celebrate the contribution and impact of student volunteers and encourage even more students to get involved.
Acting as a showcase for the diverse range of volunteering opportunities available to students who want to give something back and develop new skills, SVW will see dozens of colleges, universities and students' unions take part.
The week is organised by the Student Volunteering Network (SVN), with support from Student Hubs and NUS, and is aiming to build on the enormous success of this year's events; SVW2018 saw over 55,000 students getting involved, with over 300 events organised!

“Student Volunteering Week is a great celebration of the dedication and impact of student volunteers across the UK and NUS is excited to be involved again this year. We are committed to promoting the student contribution to civic life and encouraging more students to have a go at volunteering and bettering their community and society. As Vice President Union Development at NUS I’m looking forward to working with partners on this campaign.”
