In service to society – celebrating our alumni volunteers

We say thank you to our volunteers this National Volunteer's Week.

King's alumni office staff members pose with cards saying 'thank you'.

Service is in our DNA at King’s. We were founded in 1829 to serve society and our students, staff and alumni have been dedicated to making the world a better place ever since.

Giving back to society and to our King’s community is an important part of what we do. Every year, thousands of alumni give their time and share their expertise and connections to help alumni, students and their local communities by #ContinuingToServe.

This week is National Volunteer’s Week in the UK, and we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who has done their bit to help others.

If you went to King’s, you are part of a community that will help you for the rest of your life. Whether it’s an ear to listen, someone to share ideas with, mentoring, a connection or a job opportunity.

You may have helped a graduate’s career through mentoring, became an international ambassador, shared your story or participated in our Global Day of Service.

Many of you have helped us continue to connect as we’ve moved events online in response to the coronavirus pandemic. We certainly couldn’t have run our new King’s Connect mentoring live event, professional development webinars or pub quizzes without you! And of course, many of you have stepped up to help your local community or health service. In which ever way you have helped, thank you for making a difference, and being part of our proud community.


Our community of volunteers is growing. Join them and make a difference.
