Volunteering

 Within DIT

There are loads of options right here in DIT for you to do something special - from raising money for the RAG charity, helping a local homework or kids sports club, helping out the Chaplains or St Vincent de Paul Society or going abroad in Summer to work as a volunteer.

DIT Student Action is the volunteering hub for students and staff of DIT. Volunteer with children, the elderly, abroad, with students or just fundraise. The DIT Societies Office, DIT Community Links, the DIT Sports Office, DIT Campus Life, the DIT Chaplaincy Service, Bike to Belarus, SVP and DITSU are all part of this.

If event management is your thing then why not volunteer your time with the DITSU Events Crew. You will get hands on experience of what it is like to run events, meet people and have fun while you are at it.

If you care about students wellbeing then why not volunteer your time with the DITSU Welfare Crew. You will help the Union with its Welfare activities and help us look after the mental and physical health of the student body.
