Student Volunteer in Uppsala is a collaboration between Uppsala university and Uppsala's non profit sector.  The aim of the project is to encourage and support students to engage in the local civil society as a way to gain experience and a way to get to know their new hometown Uppsala. We want to provide the opportunity for students to gain experience in their field of study, but also offer opportunities to get involved in something that is completely detached from the studies. 

Become a volunteer - this is how it works

On this site you will find various volunteering opportunities.  When you select an opportunity, you´ll find more information about it. Once you find an interesting opportunity, you need to fill out an application here on the site. The application is sent directly to the organisation. Sometimes it can take a little while before you get an answer from the organisation. Do not hesitate to contact the organisation yourself if you think it's been too long. The contact details for the organisation will be provided in the confirmation email you receive once you've applied.

 A few tips along the way

  • Think about what you want to do and what motivates you.
  • What kind of skills or interests do you have?
  • All assignments need not be carried out on the spot.
  • You can also volunteer from home, such as  building a website or write articles for a newsletter.
