8th Feb 2021 - With the 2021 Student Volunteering Week under way, we know lots of you will be focused on the benefits your volunteering schemes bring for your students; helping them gain new skills, understand and develop their strengths and focus on their post-education plans, all while helping others in the wider community.

We're pleased to support so many students' organisations with their Volunteering & Employability programmes, we wanted to share a few stories, ideas and top tips.

For anyone new to MSL, here's how we support your volunteering teams with MSL Volunteering & Employability by bringing your amazing volunteers, providers and award programmes together online:

  • Volunteers create their own profile which grows as they participate in activities, log hours and achieve awards.
  • Providers can manage their own opportunities and volunteer applications, reducing your team's admin tasks.
  • Run multiple award schemes for different activities, skills and hours logged and provide downloadable award certificates for volunteers to add to their profile.

Read how KeeleSU Volunteering transformed their support for student volunteers and saw participation in activities and volunteering hours logged increase during 2019-20!

MSL Volunteering & Employability provides much more than admin management – it helps us to fully support our students and manage volunteering opportunities from start to finish - KeeleSU Volunteering

Want to find out how MSL Volunteering & Employability can encourage more participation from students and support your team? Contact us today.
