CCA is a committee in the college which embodies the Castle motto of Non Nobis Solum (not for ourselves alone), aiming, in a nutshell, to promote positive interaction between Castle students and members of the wider Durham community. We currently have four divisions which run regular volunteering sessions (Homelessness, Elderly Care and Heritage Management, Primary Ed, and Secondary Ed) so there really is something for everybody, for example, last academic year alone we recorded more than 1500 contact hours with the community which is over two hours per undergraduate student! We also run one-off events and liaise with outside bodies which offer further opportunities for volunteering – for more info watch out for our CCA booklet or email Cat, the 2016-17 CCA President at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our first major event this year will be a youth conference on the 6th November, which we are running in partnership with UNESCO and the Durham World Heritage Site so look out for us recruiting for help in freshers’ week, or drop us an email if you are keen to get involved! Looking forward to meeting you all!
