Volunteer with OxFizz to fundraise for a charity of your choice, build skills and increase access to top universities.
As an OxFizz volunteer, you will receive training to deliver high quality educational services, such as practice interviews and workshops. Through charging those who can afford to pay, OxFizz is able to donate all profits to charities chosen by you AND offer these services to students on their bursary programme for free. Last year, volunteers fundraised an average of £63.83 per hour for their chosen charities.
Volunteering with us is flexible - as most sessions are over the weekend or in the evenings - and there is no minimum commitment. If you have some spare time over the summer, there are opportunities to volunteer with us in the coming months. Just sign up here or send us an email (email@example.com), and we will send you the dates of our upcoming workshops and training sessions.
Join our network today to raise money for a cause you care about, build key professional skills and meet new people.
Gotoco - Teach English in China
Teach English in China this summer with Gotoco
Haven't got any plans lined up for summer? Why not teach English in China, the perfect springboard for travelling throughout Asia. Teach Chinese children English and gain a TEFL certificate, while learning all about Chinese culture and exploring one of the most diverse countries in the world.
Gotoco runs summer camps across China, in both urban and rural locations. Get lost in beautiful scenery in Yangshuo, Guangxi or jump into the hustle and bustle of Beijing, Chongqing and Shanghai. Whatever you're interested in, Gotoco's got the place for you. We run camps in more than ten locations throughout China, offering a mixture of culture, history and adventure.
Early July ? early September, exact dates vary for each programme.
Free of charge! Moreover, we provide you with accommodation and meals at your camps, TEFL training and certification and post-programme R&R in our beautiful Yangshuo base. You'll just need to buy your flights, visa and transport within China, as well as any extra food and drinks while you're there.
Each volunteer has the opportunity to learn Mandarin, and at the end of each programme, we guarantee free accommodation for a week in Yangshuo, Guangxi, one of the most beautiful and fun places to visit in China.

Helen Gillard's Emma Veggie Cookbook - recipes needed!
I'm currently making a vegetarian (including vegan) cookbook specific to the cooking facilities we have available to us at Emma, so that people who would like to try to eat less meat can have some help doing that. If you already know about it, I would like to receive any last recipes by the end of NPR so that I can finish it over Summer. Email them to Helen (hlg39).
Basically I'm asking other students to give recipes and plan to write who suggested each recipe in the cookbook (though do say if you prefer to remain anonymous). It really needn't be super extravagant meals as we often just want quick things anyway, but equally if people have a few more extravagant ones, that's fine too. *PICTURES* would also be amazing! As would any general veggie cooking tips or whatever! Hoping to make it available in digital form for free and sell it in paper form (if we make a profit, said profit will go to an as yet undecided charity).
It would be lovely to have more people contributing!
