Pros of volunteering for students:

  • Positive inclusion on CV
  • Provides a diverse range of opportunities that is different to opportunities provided by paid employment
  • Provides opportunities for students who have limited work capacity to get different experience
  • Supplements industry experience that may be less reliable in frequency and availability

Outcomes of NFP database:

  • Build long term relationships with NFPs that sees PCPM students getting the best opportunities
  • Facilitates communication with NFPs to keep them up to date about PCPM and invite them to PCPM functions
  • On Campus events for NFPs and Students -such as “smart choices” seminars to educate students and NFPs about volunteer work

NFP’s will agree to a code of conduct including:
