Volunteer Army

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

Partnering with a massive variety of charities and not-for-profit organisations (including Guide Dogs Australia, the Cancer Council, City2Surf), Volunteer Army gives students a flexible opportunity to give back to the community. Sign up to VA's facebook group, keep an eye out for interesting opportunities, invite your friends (or meet soon to be friends) and gain invaluable experience. Have your volunteer work recognised on your Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).  Good karma guaranteed!
