Intended for the university community, the Sports and Inclusiveness Volunteering Programme is an institutional and strategic corporate responsibility project in the framework of the University of Alicante's UA & YOU Volunteering Programme. Within this programme, volunteers will acquire learning and training through a community service experience (learning-service).

UA students/volunteers will be required to complete a training module. After each volunteering action, a certain amount of credits will be recognised.

The Sports and Inclusiveness Volunteering Programme gives you the chance to take part in:

Major federated and university sports events, conferences, tournaments and competitions (welcome of athletes, information stands, distribution of race bibs, supplies, check and transition points, etc.).

Adaptive sports programmes (diving, basketball, rugby, orienteering) and inclusive sports programmes (swimming, goalball) for people with functional diversity.

Programmes targeted at people at risk of social exclusion or with special needs.

Communication activities, such as broadcasts of sports events, pictures and recordings of federated and university sports events and competitions.

PLEASE NOTE
A certificate recognising the ECTS credits gained (1 credit per 25 volunteering hours, up to 2 credits) will be issued at the end of the academic year.
No credits will be awarded if less than 25 hours were completed. It will not be possible to add together hours achieved in different academic years.
