VCS Cymru, working in partnership with Student Volunteering Cardiff (SVC), are launching a variety of exciting new volunteering opportunities for student-volunteers wishing to gain experience within research, collation and digitisation, through a new project called Chronicle.

About the project:

Chronicle is a two year community heritage project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project will research, collate, digitise, and make publicly available the story of charities and volunteering in the Southern Arc of Cardiff from 1914 to 2014. The project will deliver a series of road shows to record oral stories of past volunteering, workshops, community radio programmes and podcasts, walking tours, an exhibition, andhive.

Volunteering opportunities:

There are a range of different opportunities for volunteers to get involved, these include: · Heritage and Arts volunteers (activities include the walking trails, geo-mapping, radio documentaries, and exhibition. Volunteers can participate in all or just one of these activities). . Volunteer Radio Researcher and Production Assistant

Please see the specific role descriptions on the right hand side of the screen.

Volunteers are welcome to apply for several roles depending on their time commitments.

Volunteer Commitment:

Volunteers are expected to commit at least 5 hours per week to the project, starting with 1 afternoon’s induction and project briefing, and a progress/ support meeting every two weeks at the volunteer’s time/ location convenience.

The project offers short and long-term volunteering opportunities. Volunteers may choose how long they wish to volunteer with the project; however, a minimum period of commitment is 3 months.

Please note: Student-volunteers will not be expected to volunteer over holidays and/ or exam periods.
