Pro Bono

Aspire is a wonderful, one-off volunteering project. We work with primary schools in the Nottingham City area, mainly to deliver diverse and exciting workshops on six law-related topics. These workshops include, broadly-speaking: role-plays, games, poster-making and problem-solving activities.

From the academic year 2017, Aspire will conduct workshops on: human rights, justice, stereotyping, 'what is law?', women's rights, and voting & elections. A recent addition to our project, known as 'Quickfire', is a marriage of all six of our workshops. Here, the students get to experience all of our topics in the time it would take to experience one in full. We have selected only the best activities for this bitesize taste of Aspire.

Recently, our project started to invite students to the University, as part of an event now known as their 'Discovery Day'. As well as this, we work with local institutions, such as the Into University, to deliver our workshops.

Aspire operates in several primary schools across Nottingham, including the areas of Hyson Green, St Ann’s, Dunkirk, and Bakersfield. We are looking to extend Aspire's influence by collaborating with Nottingham Trent University and TeachFirst, as well as becoming a 'learning destination' for the Children's University.

The feedback from our student volunteers has been phenomenal - they find Aspire's events enjoyable, refreshing, and rewarding, adding to their university experience and improving their CVs.

The Pro Bono Society welcomes any students, who have a passion for working with children and a desire to help the local community, to sign up for our numerous events throughout the forthcoming academic year. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact myself (project head) using the details provided.

Safeguarding training is now compulsory in order to attend both Aspire and Outlaw trips and events, but free safeguarding sessions are provided reguarly throughout term and certificates are provided to all participating volunteers at the end.
