School holidays are still terribly long for many students as well as parents trying to finance their children’s activities. For older students it is of course an ideal time to get some work experience and names on your CV.
There are plenty of local charities who might be willing to give a student a placement and be grateful for their time. In life nothing we do should ever be a waste, but an investment in our future. Often by volunteering aside of experience we often open doors for job opportunities.
If you cannot find the ideal placement best suited to your chosen career path you can still show your willingness to be community spirited and contribute socially. These are all worthwhile in the longer term and for those students who will be needing to write personal statements next term any voluntary work will be a bonus and prove your capability of taking the initiative and being responsible.
