Registering student volunteer hours: we need your help!

07 Feb 2020

Last year, students applied to volunteer 4,600 times but many are still missing out on the Stellify Award by not recording their hours


We need you to encourage undergraduate students to get their volunteering hours registered on the Volunteer Hub before 31 May 2020, so they don’t miss out on the Stellify Award.

How can I help?

Are you running a volunteer project? Log those hours!

If you run a project that uses student volunteers, please ensure that you have posted the hours for your volunteers on Volunteer Hub. You can also encourage any students who you know who volunteer, to ask their organisation to post their hours for them.

Share our video

If a student has found a volunteering position independently (that’s not advertised on the Volunteer Hub), they will need to upload their hours themselves. They can follow the instructions from our ‘How to’ video

Remind students of the Higher Education Achievement Record (HEAR)

If students aren’t aiming for the Stellify Award, they should still log their hours. If they complete the ‘Make a Difference’ section (40 hours of volunteering) it will appear on their HEAR record. They can share their transcript with potential employers as a verified account of their volunteering.
