More about the project

What is the social/environmental problem/issue that this project will address?
We hold a vision for the future of higher education in the UK where student volunteering and social action is the norm and not the exception, and where a flourishing community of socially aware and socially active students are given plenty of opportunities to make a positive impact at the local, national and international levels, both now and in their future careers.
Can you give us some statistics on this problem?
Oxford Hub is the first space dedicated to student-powered social change in the UK. All profits made from the building will go straight towards our charity Student Hubs which now works with 14,000 students and 20 national NGOs in five universities to make sure that student social action is the norm and not the exception.
What is your solution?
It is our aim to produce a positive social impact both now and in the future. Through our community projects and careers schemes we provide opportunities for students to help out in their local communities throughout the academic year. We also work with a number of charities that send student volunteers abroad so that we can involve students in making a positive impact through sustainable development initiatives across the world. By connecting students to job opportunities in the third sector and supporting them as they set up their own initiatives, we hope to create a positive social impact on future generations.
How will you deliver this?
Oxford Hub is the first building dedicated to student-powered social change in the UK. All profits made from the building will go straight towards our charity Student Hubs which now works with 18,000 students and 20 national NGOs in seven universities to make sure that student social action is the norm and not the exception.
