Volunteering opportunities at WAES
Volunteering means donating your time to help good causes or other people. It's a great way to gain work experience. Some people volunteer to learn a new skill and meet new people, others want to get work experience or a reference. Many simply want to build their confidence and have fun.
WAES offer a range of exciting volunteering opportunities. You don’t even need to be a WAES student to apply but you do need to be over 18 years old.
Please register and apply for WAES opportunities online.
