Volunteering is vital to the student sport community in Scotland. At SSS we are always keen to celebrate best practice, showcase opportunities and highlight the impact of students. This webinar will look closely at the process and structures required to effectively integrate volunteers and why it’s important to get it right from the start.

The panel has vast experience in both recruiting and developing volunteers.  Drawing on their own personal experiences, the panel will offer support and advice for delivering a more developmental approach to volunteers.
