Post-16 Evening Student Volunteer

We’re looking for student volunteers to join us as we visit secondary schools across Cambridgeshire on their post-16 information evenings throughout September, October and November.

Your role is to share your experiences of Long Road with any interested students. Most people want to know general information about college life so your experiences as a student are really valuable to them and can have a big impact when it comes to their decision on where to study after their GCSEs. Members of staff will be with you all evening, so any questions you can’t answer simply direct them to us.

Email Abby today to sign up as a post-16 evening student volunteer: afutter@longroad.ac.uk

  • Game Pundit: We are also interested in exploring the possibility of having a running commentary of all home games (some basic basketball knowledge may be needed for this)

The benefit of taking on these roles will be:

Projects Abroad

We run bespoke volunteer trips for groups in 25 different countries around the world and these trips can be anything from one week to a month in length.

We make change possible through our projects. Each one solves a specific problem, in a specific place. This might be to save sea turtles from being wiped out in Mexico or fighting gender inequality in Ghana. Our projects run all year round so you can choose your own start and end dates. You can be a part of something that is making long term, meaningful change to people that really need it. Every time a group signs up for one of our projects, they’re investing in a better world.

Since 1992 we have worked with groups from all over the UK, many of whom have gone on to organise even more trips away with us; you can read about their time with Projects Abroad in the Case Studies on our website.
