The Volunteering Team brings students and staff together with the local community, supporting charities and foundations in and around Durham. Activities range from bake sale fundraisers and art therapy projects for those with mental illness to helping children with homework and restoring historic gardens. The team also organizes career events about the charity sector and provides a host of volunteers for all kinds of college events such as the Summer BBQ, family events, and college celebrations.
"As co-leader of the Volunteer Team, I experienced the close friendships, volunteering opportunities, and intellectual community that I had hoped to find as a graduate student. From volunteering at a premier exhibition on Japanese Art, to baking Christmas cookies for the Ustinov Foundation fundraiser, and restoring a seventeenth-century garden I have had many memorable experiences with members of Ustinov College and the larger Durham community. Being a part of the GCP has allowed me to improve my event-planning, editorial, design and photography skills, while learning and growing alongside an inspiring group of fellow scholars."
