Microvolunteering

Microvolunteering is a fantastic (and easy!) way to make a difference, without taking up much time! Microvolunteering is a series of easy tasks that can be done anytime, anywhere, on your own terms.

It could involve anything from signing a petition or retweeting a message to taking part in a flash mob or counting birds in your garden. You don’t need to go through an application or complete any training, it doesn’t take long to complete, and it doesn’t require any commitment.

Here at the Students' Union, we value our student’s time and want to empower you to be able to make a difference, no matter how small! So here are some of our top Microvolunteering opportunities, starting with The Union’s monthly opportunity:

 

#TopTipsMMU

 

New to Uni or returning this Autumn? We want your Top Tips. Whether it’s the best place for breakfast, your favourite Saturday hang out or your best survival tip for those early morning lectures. We want you to take 2 minutes on any social media and let us know! Use our hashtag #TopTipsMMU and we’ll retweet the best ones on @VolunteeringMMU. If you’re new and you’ve got a question then use our hashtag and someone will get back to you!
