First Generation Volunteering

Your expertise could help First Generation students develop their confident and reach their potential.

First Generation volunteers are vital in helping us to provide a complete journey of student support. Together, we can help our students achieve their personal best.

First Generation volunteers can gain new skills through mentoring, giving career talks and presentations, sharing career stories, providing paid placements for our students and much more. Volunteering will give you the opportunity to share your skills, time and experiences with Manchester Metropolitan University students. 

Volunteering opportunities

As the First Generation scheme progresses, there will be many different volunteering activities to take part in. By registering to become a First Generation volunteer, we will contact you directly when new opportunities arise, to see if you would like to take part.

If you have any ideas of different volunteering opportunities that you could offer, we'd love to hear from you, please get in touch.
