Guild Schools Volunteer
Liverpool Guild of Students is inviting you to join us as a science or green volunteer for Guild Schools.
This project gives University of Liverpool Students to deliver workshops in Primary or Secondary schools across Merseyside. It’s a great opportunity for students and pupils to develop their skills and experience something new, plus it’s completely free both the student volunteers and the schools themselves.
You will be trained to deliver a one-hour session with another volunteer. It could be teaching pupils how to recycle, how to live sustainably or showing them how to carry out an exciting science experiment!
