Volunteering is an excellent opportunity to make a direct contribution to your community while also learning about social issues and community building. Volunteering with a not for profit organisation provides insight into the challenges that many people face throughout our communities, and allows you to consider how you can create change.

Volunteering on campus contributes to the welfare of students as well as helping the university to provide an environment that fosters belonging, learning and achievement.
