Volunteering

Volunteering is a great way to stay connected with Teddy Hall whilst making a huge difference to current students and alumni. Can you give your time to help inspire, and share knowledge and stories with students and alumni?

Volunteering opportunities

Offer careers advice
Would you be willing to speak to students and recent graduates via email or on the phone to offer informal careers advice? We are looking for more volunteers to join our pool of alumni who already offer guidance.

Host an event or provide a venue
We run a large number of social and networking events for both alumni and students in the UK and further afield. We rely on the generous support of alumni who host many of our events at offices, clubs and restaurants, meaning we can keep costs low for attendees. If you have a venue which would suit a networking event, informal drinks or a dinner we would be delighted to hear from you.

Talk at an event
Every term we hold a networking event as part of our series of alumni Teddy Talks. A huge range of topics are discussed, including the NHS, the beauty industry and economics. If you would be interested in speaking and have a passion for your chosen field please do get in contact.

Become a Reunion Volunteer
Every year we organise 10th, 20th, 30th, 40th, 50th and 60th anniversary lunches and dinners. Our alumni reunion volunteers help to spread the word and get old friends together for an event to remember. Reunion Volunteers help us to find more alumni and encourage participation in the event.

If you have any questions about becoming involved please contact Kate Townsend, Alumni Relations Manager.

“Having only visited Teddy Hall a couple of times after graduating in 1995 (mainly to show family and friends around Oxford) I decided to get more involved when I got invited by a friend of mine to join St Catz’s Development Office and thought to myself, that if I was going to do something it should be for my own college…

And so the journey started. I emailed Sally who very quickly replied and got me in touch with the Principal. We came down for dinner and Keith and I immediately hit it off in terms of ideas and plans of what I could do. I knew I wanted to give more than a financial contribution – I wanted to get more involved and that is how the idea of the panel discussion of Aularian women in business came up. I managed to secure a great venue for us at my bank’s headquarters. We then went from strength to strength! Sally organised another 4 Aularian women for the panel from a variety of backgrounds, matriculation years and subjects and we had a fantastic event! The 5 panellists got along so well that we have since met up again.

Since that debut, I have been back for a couple more events and each time the desire to get more involved and give back to the College where I had such a fantastic time – both academically and socially – continues to grow. I think the ideas are only starting and I would like to thank Teddy Hall for making me feel as welcome as I did 25 years ago…”
