Alumni volunteering

Alumni volunteering

Each year, hundreds of alumni volunteers draw on their knowledge, experience and expertise to help the next generation of Leeds graduates to succeed.

Help our students to flourish by offering careers advice, sharing knowledge about your industry, mentoring students or providing work experience.

When you volunteer at Leeds, you’ll develop your existing leadership and mentoring skills, expand your professional network and experience the pride and satisfaction that comes with helping students to achieve their goals.

Ways you can volunteer

  • Internships and placements

    Offer internships or placements and benefit from the specialist skills, new ideas and enthusiasm that our students can provide.

  • Mentoring

    Our students thrive when alumni give them real-life insights into the world of work. You could be the mentor or e-mentor that launches a student’s career.
