St Hilda’s has a long established and rich history of volunteering, with volunteers involved in services across the organisation. This continues today with the Community Volunteer Project. We host a wide range of volunteers, from individuals, to students from Cheltenham Ladies College (its alumni association, Guild, is our founding institution), to corporate volunteers volunteering on either a short- or long-term basis.
We also host international volunteers:
Clayton Volunteering – USA
St Hilda’s has worked in partnership with Winant Clayton Volunteering for over 20 years. A volunteer has been placed every summer with us for 10 weeks and this has proved to be a fruitful and enriching experience for both the volunteer and St Hilda’s projects. Volunteers are supported with accommodation through WCV and volunteer at St Hilda’s on a full-time basis during their placement supporting the Older People’s Project.
St Hilda’s has worked in partnership with CAPA International Education for over 5 years. St Hilda’s provides experiential learning for students combining their academic and practical experiences together via community placements. Internship students are placed from 2 -8 weeks and provide a unique and special quality to St Hilda’s community.
