Make a Difference (M.A.D) days and projects

Do you have an opportunity that students can lead? Have a one day project that needs help? A brief project giving students the opportunity to develop new skills and experiences? If the answer is yes, a M.A.D day and project would be perfect for you and your organisation.

M.A.D. Days are one day volunteering projects which encourage volunteers to work on a short project with maximum impact. This is a great way to provide volunteers with an insight into your organisation. Previous examples have included:

  • a small garden makeover
  • help with a coffee morning/fete/sports day
  • bag pack/charity collection
  • help with research.

M.A.D. Projects are longer term activities for looking to lead and develop a volunteering activity/project on behalf of an organisation. Previous examples of M.A.D. projects have included:

  • organising fundraising/awareness raising campaigns
  • re-designing branding and marketing materials
  • roducing short DVD promotional films
  • Small community/interview room makeovers

Volun-tees staff are happy to visit your organisation to discuss proposals in more detail.
