National Volunteer Week: Co-curricular Record volunteer activities

Today is our final day for NZ’s National Volunteer Week. Because there was a lot to keep track of, our post for Day 7 will be an overview of what volunteer roles first-year undergrad degree students can get involved in and have recorded on your Co-curricular Record.

Day 1 we talked about UC Gym Hosts, a volunteer role assisting the management and operations of the UC RecCentre.

Day 2 was a spotlight on the Student Volunteer Army and the multiple roles first-year undergrads can participate in and claim on their CCR.

Day 3 we focused on the Class Representatives as an activity to look forward to for your Semester 2 courses.

Day 4 spotlighted UC Guardians, their training and their role as part of the UC Security Office.

Day 5 introduced the UC branch of 180 Degrees Consulting and the 180 Degrees Consultants role working with real-world organisations.

Day 6 was our final spotlight on UC Hosts, an activity that involves taking part in a number of different events as a UC representative.

You can look at our complete list of CCR activities to read more about these and to see our other paid and scholarship activities. We have more waiting behind the scenes for first-years and beyond coming up, so keep an eye out.

Wanting to get involved in these activities and get recognised for it? Register to the Co-curricular Record on CareerHub and go to www.canterbury.ac.nz/support/ccr for more information.

National Volunteer Week: Co-curricular Record Activity Spotlight – 180 Degrees Consultants

For those who enjoy working with charities and non-profit organisations, the 180 Degrees Consulting club gives you the opportunity to work with real world organisations to help them improve the impact they make on society.

180 Degrees Consultants at the UCSA work within teams on a project aiming to support their organisation in how they could improve their image, outreach and social impact. Each receives training on how to come up with effective solutions and have the opportunity to make a difference with current operations in over 18 countries.
