DMUactive Volunteering Academy

The DMUactive Volunteering Academy offers a fantastic opportunity for students to develop their skills in coaching, communication and administration to boost their employability.

With activators across 14 different sports, their role ensures the student-led nature of DMUactive opportunities, whilst also developing their own leadership skills and CV.

Supported by DMU Sports, volunteers are fully resourced to ensure their positive contribution to the continual development of DMUactive.

The academy’s aim is to help increase the number of students engaged in sports activities, broadening DMU Sports’ participation offer and improving the physical and mental wellbeing of participants.

All volunteers can log their volunteering hours and also submit their work to be recorded on their Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR).

If you're interested in becoming a DMUactive activator, please email DMUactive on or call 0116 207 8140 for more information.
