Volunteering and charity work at the BSP: “an exchange of time for an experience”.
The volunteering and charity opportunities give students the chance to widen their learning outside the classroom. The world beyond the gates of the BSP is rich and diverse; volunteering teaches our young people the lasting value of giving time to others.
Our volunteering programme is not about having something to write about on a CV it is about developing a positive attitude to supporting the wider community, about understanding the importance of service before self.
“Whether there’s a particular cause that’s close to your heart, or you’re just keen to meet some new people, get out of your comfort zone and try something new. I would encourage students facing the big decision of “what next?” over the coming years to start by giving some of their time to others. The truth is, volunteering is never one-way, it’s an exchange of time for an experience, an interaction or enrichment and you never know where that could lead you.”
