Business Volunteer

Our Business volunteers are so important to us and they really make a huge difference to the experiences that we deliver. Some of the children we work with havenโ€™t met adults from different career backgrounds, so you will act as an extremely positive role model for our children.
Whether someone volunteers regularly or just once or twice a year, they will be a fantastic mentor for our children and assist them in their learning.

There are opportunities to volunteer for a full day, half a day or overnight on a weekend. During term time we have an average of 3 experiences taking place every week, so there are plenty of ways to get involved.

Volunteering for a good cause will make your staff feel great and will also be a fantastic opportunity for professional development.

Interested in signing your staff or colleagues up for volunteering? Here are the simple steps you need to take:

  • Mentor Registration โ€“ Ask each member of staff to fill out the Mentor Registration Form. You can download it here.
  • Training Session – Decide if you would like an in-house training session or if you would like to send staff on one of our mentor training sessions at the University. We recommend that if you have 5 or more staff interested then we come along to train them at your business. Training takes a maximum of 1 hour.
  • DBS Check – If your staff already have had a recent DBS check then we need to see their certificates. If they require a DBS check then Hull Childrenโ€™s University will arrange this for you.
  • Choose a volunteering opportunity – Our administrator will send out opportunities via email either to every registered staff member or to a nominated individual to distribute. Staff can then choose which opportunities they would like to sign up for.
