A person who performs a service willingly and without pay, gaining new skills, friends and experiences along the way.
Any volunteering can go towards your KSCV award, whether that be through Kent Union or the community!
The KSCV Platinum Award (SO670) is a module based around volunteering, which involves completing an essay, a portfolio and a presentation, as well as a minimum of 90 volunteering hours across three different areas.
The module is highly rewarding, and can go a long way in teaching you about the public sector, and why people volunteer. The module is convened by Dr Eddy Hogg, who specialises in philanthropy, charitable giving, volunteering and the charitable and community sector.
To sign up, email Steph from the Kent Union Volunteer Development and Support department at email@example.com and register your interest. Depending on your course of study, the SO670 module can be taken as either a 15 credit module, or as an extra-curricular module. Both options will appear on your graduation transcript.
Do you know a volunteer that has gone the extra mile? Do you think they deserve some extra recognition for their volunteering?
