Volunteer with Converge

York St John University students can volunteer with Converge as participants or in a leadership role.

The success of Converge relies on the involvement of York St John University students.

Volunteering opportunities

There are 3 main ways in which a student can get involved in Converge:

As a student participant

Model ideal student behaviour by taking part in the workshop alongside Converge Students as a community of learners.

This includes fully participating in all of the activities, being attentive, supporting Converge Students to engage fully in the session, supporting the tutor where needed, and being a friendly and approachable person. This role may also involve providing individual support.

As a co-facilitator

Use the skills you are learning on your undergraduate or postgraduate degree to co-facilitate one of our courses.

These have often been used as placements or assessment moments for York St John students. You will be able to work with a course, alongside a tutor, and build up to you facilitating part of the course. For example, if you are on the Drama: Education and Community BA (Hons) then you might consider transferring those skills by facilitating part of our Introduction to Theatre Course. This can work in all of our courses.

As a workshop facilitator

Take charge of running and planning one or more sessions.

If you have a particular skill that you feel you could teach over a 4 to 10 week period, let us know and we can discuss the possibility of you running your own course for us.
