Virtual Volunteering
Like every other aspect of life at the moment, the volunteering scene is changing quite quickly. Most face-to-face volunteering has stopped in line with the UK Government's advice on social distancing. UCL students and staff are still keen to volunteer. Here at the Volunteering Service, we've been gathering up examples of virtual volunteering you can do. Unlike other opportunities you'll see on…

The Global Diaspora Confederation (GDC) is the world’s largest diaspora-led civil society organization to connect and empower Diaspora Organizations at the global level. GDC aspires to build an inclusive movement where all Diaspora Organizations can be supported, belong to, discover and realize their ambitions in order to achieve peace, unity, and social and economic advancement for all.

Secretary team members work closely with the Chair of GDC. The secretary team supports the smooth operation of GDC and any on demand work  required by the Chair. Externally, the role officially liaises for GDC, while internally, it  works with all departments to provide support for the Chair.

Secretary team members are strong pillars to GDC, that can be relied upon and reflect the image of GDC accurately and effectively at all times. The secretary team members also assist the Chair in reducing the substantial workload and ensure any outstanding or urgent enquiries are managed without delay, especially when the Chair is being fully occupied. The secretary team members also ensure meetings are well organized and documented with prompt responsiveness.

What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
This is a remote opportunity.

This opportunity does not come from one of our registered community partner organisations and they have not signed up to our service standards. However, we believe this organisation has a well-run volunteering programme that would meet our criteria for good volunteer management.

The team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch at any time with any questions, queries or problems you encounter.
