Social Hackathons are problem-solving and solution-creating events that give UCL volunteers first-hand insight into charity careers.

Volunteers are placed with a local not-for-profit organisation for one day, devising and implementing solutions to issues they currently face.

In teams, the volunteers develop skills, learn about the Third Sector from its own professionals and connect with new communities across London.

Social Hackathons - November 2020

Our November 2020 Social Hackathons has now passed. Don’t worry if you missed it though, we’ll be hosting another round of Hackathons in February 2021 so keep an eye out for that update. 

In the meantime, we’ve got plenty of engaging opportunities on our volunteering directory, where you can browse the latest virtual volunteering roles to get involved in. Alternatively, if you want to help in response to Covid-19, we have several opportunities which you can also view on our directory.
