Logging your volunteering hours
You can log your hours here.
It's easy and quick to log your hours, plus it goes on your academic transcript once you've done 50 hours of volunteering and got 5 employability skills! That sounds like a lot but it soons adds up if you make sure you're logging them. We also host our annual volunteer awards where we recognise our volunteers, but we can't do that if we don't know what you're doing!
You can log your hours here. Here's a handy video guide if you've not logged hours before, or you need a little reminder.
Handy tip: save the link on your phone so you can log your hours at any events you're at.
The first time you go to the webpage you'll have to set up a profile which outlines any positions you might hold at the union, university, or elsewhere that can count towards your volunteering time.
Next you'll need to scroll down and select the "log hours" options, fill in a quick summary of what you did and how long you spent doing it... and that's it!
Make sure you also log your "skills" section as well, this is very easy to do and you need at least 5 skills for your hours to be put on your academic transcript.
It's super easy to do so make sure you keep on top of it by adding to the website every time you volunteer your time!
What can I log as volunteering hours?
Any time you spend doing admin, organising events, doing social media, recruiting new members, running sessions, attending training, and more, can be logged. One notable exception is that you can't log time spent at a social, but you can log any time you spend planning for it! If you're still not sure about what you can log, please get in touch with Polly.
