A little bit about the Committee

The Volunteering Committee sets the strategic direction of volunteering and community engagement activities within the Guild.

Our primary mission is to build a culture of student-led volunteering and community engagement on campus.

We believe in building long-lasting relationships with organisations in the wider community, and giving students the opportunity to pursue areas of volunteering which they are passionate about. The new internship program seeks to develop greater leadership capacity amongst students, fostering a drive for change and encourage others to ‘do good’.
