The LSE Volunteer Centre is very proud of the number of students that volunteer during their time at LSE. Students tell us that the main reason holding them back from volunteering is that they don't feel they have enough time to commit to regular volunteering whilst successfully completing their studies. As a result, this term we've expanded our range of one-off volunteering opportunities to include opportunities that take one hour or less.

We are launching this opportunities as part of the #JustOneHour campaign during LSE Student Volunteering Week 2017.

Opportunities lasting an hour or less
