Passionate about sport? Be a sports volunteer with NTU, and make a difference doing what you love – whether it’s supporting PE lessons, delivering after-school sports clubs, or coaching a local sports club.

Volunteering is an amazing way to help people, but it also has some real benefits for you. It can really enhance your CV, helping you stand out to employers, and it can be a great opportunity to develop some new skills. You'll also get to meet lots of like-minded people and make friends.
