The Saints Volunteer programme offers students many opportunities to add value to their University education, enhance their global awareness, develop their leadership skills and improve their teaching and coaching abilities.

In all our projects we use sport, leadership and education as a tool to empower and enrich communities and make a difference to the lives of young people, including nurturing a culture of volunteering in our own students.

Volunteer Portal

The volunteer recognition scheme monitors, acknowledges and rewards the hard work and commitment of volunteers at St Andrews. Students can sign up to the scheme via the dedicated online portal, where they can log their volunteering hours and projects. Students who achieve Gold and Platinum awards can have their volunteering efforts formally recognised on their Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) when they graduate.

Volunteer Zambia

Volunteer Zambia is an international sport programme run by the Wallace Group – a collaboration between leading UK ‘sport’ universities – we support and work with the leading Zambian sports NGO, Sport in Action. Together, we use sport to engage, educate and empower young people in Zambia and the UK.
