Volunteering is the best way to meet new people, learn great skills and get involved in the community!

Each year, Arc runs heaps of activities, programs and events that you can join as a volunteer. Over 1000 UNSW students get involved in our programs each year. Volunteers develop their own skills and the skills of others in the community. It also provides a great sense of achievement and is heaps of fun.

Most of these programs are also acknowledged by UNSW on your 'Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS)' upon graduating. These attributes will put you ahead of the rest when applying for that graduate job!


Arc expects all volunteer applicants to read and comply with Arc's Workplace Health & Safety (WHS) Management System. Details of the WHSMS can be found here .


2015 Volunteer Applications

STEP 1 - Be an Arc member (its free!!)

All 2015 Volunteers must be Arc Members. It takes about 3min to join AND its FREE! Arc membership also comes with a range of other benefits which you can find out more about HERE.


If you have already signed up to Arc last year (ie- you are already on OrgSync) just go to Arc Reception to get your 2015 Arc Sticker and have your membership renewed!


STEP 2 - Do you know what you want to Volunteer for?

If not, there are a number of ways in which you can find out about our volunteer programs:

1. Check out the 2014 Volunteer Handbook

2. See the program webpages (links below)

3. Come into Arc reception and ask to talk to one of our friendly staff members - we can help you find the right program to suit you and your needs.



Note - If you are looking for The Volunteer Army, that now exists on OrgSync under "Service Opportunities" on your home page, or you can visit the Volunteer Army Portal for more information.


STEP 4 - Be Patient

Once you have filled in the application it is reviewed by our Programs' Student Coodinators (yes, they're students just like you!). Our Coordinators will email you as soon as they can with information.
