Calling all students!
Looking for something to do in your spare time? Why not get to know your community, make a real difference to people’s lives and get great work experience by volunteering with your local CAB?
We know you have some serious demands made on your time, however, we’re sure you’d agree, you’re left with a relatively substantial amount of time to do as you please. So why not put some of that time to good use by volunteering?
Volunteering at your CAB
The Citizens Advice service provides unique, office-based, volunteering opportunities that allow students to gain real, tangible work experience
Many students find volunteering with the CAB gives them a real insight and connection with their adopted community
You will receive training and accreditation for the work you do and needless to say it will look great on your CV
Hundreds of students volunteer with Citizens Advice every year all over the country. You might also find your course has a strong link with the work we do. For example, law students can knock up to six months off of their training contract by volunteering as an adviser. Social policy and politics students can see first hand the kind of issues affecting people on the street and work to make a difference.
There is a range of volunteering roles available in the CAB service, from administration and reception to advising and campaigning. For emerging linguists you could get to practice what you have learnt as an interpreter at the CAB or for those interested in PR or marketing as an Event Organiser or Fundraiser.
Benefits your community
In addition, you get to give something back to your local community. Benefits to your community are potentially immense. You can make a real difference by providing services that might otherwise not have been available.
