Volunteer Army

Give back to the community!

Volunteer Army connects UNSW students with volunteering opportunities, fostering student engagement with the wider community. 

The program partners with a huge variety of charities and not-for-profits such as the Starlight Children's Foundation, Guide Dogs Australia, the Cancer Council, City2Surf and more! 

Getting involved in is a great way to use your time and fundraising skills for good in this flexible entry level program.  

Meet your 2018 Coordinator

Hey there!

I’m Justin, a 3rd year Mechanical Engineering student with a huge passion for inspiring others to do good (and a slightly smaller passion for wearing crazy socks). I live (and work) on campus so don’t be surprised if you see me around, I’m always up for a chat.

The Volunteer Army is an incredible program dedicated to supporting a wide range of important causes within and beyond our local community. I am so excited to be leading this program as your coordinator and I encourage you to find us on Facebook for more updates from me and the team.
