Student Community Action launched a revamped website to
celebrate student volunteering week 2002. The group has
more than 700 members who work in over 60 projects in
the local community, helping children, families, the elderly
member Andrew Brigden said: "Leeds SCA benefits not only
the people and groups our volunteers work with, but the
students as well, who learn new skills, enhance their
talents and meet new people, helping to form an integrated
experience of volunteer work with SCA can influence students'
careers like former volunteer Dave Gilbert, who graduated
in 2000, decided to stay in Leeds and now works as a special
needs assistant at Elmete Wood School.
