Student volunteers

De Montfort University encourages students to consider volunteering alongside their studies. Organisations with volunteering opportunities have a number of ways in which they engage with DMU students.

DSU Volunteering

De Montfort Students' Union (DSU) provides opportunities for local charities and social enterprises to advertise for volunteers.

More than 2000 students per year volunteer not only to improve their CV but to gain valuable work skills. Our active volunteers make a huge contribution to the local community every year giving thousands of hours of their free time.

Square Mile

De Montfort University is committed to providing a public good beyond the campus boundaries.

To demonstrate this commitment, DMU’s pioneering Square Mile programme offers a range of projects that draw upon academic expertise to work with the community to improve health, education and job prospects in Woodgate, Fosse and Newfoundpool in Leicester.
