About Aspire
Aspire Volunteering Group - Aspire is a student-led volunteering group which aims to inspire, engage and develop understanding of disability sports within the local youth. Our project is inspired by the London 2012 Olympic legacy, focusing on Paralympics. Our volunteers visit local primary schools in Tower Hamlets, delivering fun and unique sessions to encourage and inspire young children to stay active whilst learning the importance of inclusiveness within sports. Why join us? Fits around your timetable. Partner primary schools are within walking distance from campus. Gives back to the local community. Free DBS check Counts towards the volunteering award. Doesn’t require constant commitment. Most importantly, it is fun and enjoyable. 2021/2022 Objectives: Due to current events this year looks a bit different but it is also the perfect time to give back to the community! This semester will involve recruiting volunteers and preparing them for when volunteering is possible. Throughout the year Aspire will also be holding student-led fundraising events for various charities and holding training events for our volunteers. In semester B Aspire will hold our annual Open Sports Day in collaboration with QMUL Community Sports.We also want to help volunteers gain and further develop various employability skills like leadership, teamwork, time-management, creativity and communication. 2021/2022 Committee:President: Thivya Uthayakumar & Schneeha InpakumarTreasurer: Snigdha MagantiVice President: Umme AmmaraWelfare Representative: Mya Kianaat Contact us:If you are interested in being a part of Aspire and want to find out more or have any questions about volunteering with us please get in touch:Email: aspire@qmsu.orgTwitter: @aspire_qmsu  -  https://twitter.com/aspire_qmsuFacebook: Aspire Volunteering Group QMSU -  https://www.facebook.com/pages/QMSU-Aspire/183879748360585 Instagram: @aspire_qmsu  -  https://www.instagram.com/aspire_qmsu/  To join our group / be added to the mailing list, please fill out this google form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdgZKKmq5ARz1tU_0ojQF-g-gy4qG2WOKmcNwW9njk5Wc7Fhg/viewform?usp=pp_urlAlso join our Whatsapp group chat for regular updates:  https://chat.whatsapp.com/EMcRGOwdz5E1D5YtmbDztuWe look forwards to having you join our volunteering group :)
