Trinity Engage: Give Time at SCA


Student Community Action

Student Community Action (SCA) exists to encourage the involvement of students in voluntary community work, providing services to disadvantaged groups within the community and giving students a valuable learning experience.  They currently offer seventy opportunities. SCA manage ten of these projects, which cater to the interests of Cambridge students; these projects range from homework help to visiting the elderly.  The other sixty projects are run by a wide range of external organisations for which SCA recruit, including projects in education, healthcare, international development, the environment, visiting the vulnerable, IT work, and sports. Volunteers normally give 1-3 hours a week, and all the projects are within cycling distance of the city centre.
