National Student Volunteer Week, running from 7 – 13 August, is fast approaching.

Discover how to participate, whether it’s seeking support for planning volunteer activities or promoting volunteer events and campaigns. Don’t miss this opportunity to join in and make a difference!

We invite all education providers, volunteer organisations and students across the country to participate in National Student Volunteer Week (#NSVW23). Supported by Volunteering Australia and all State and Territory Peak volunteering bodies, this dedicated week acknowledges and celebrates student volunteers, and promotes volunteering to students and young people across Australia.

This year’s theme – Give. Grow. Belong – speaks to a generation who are more socially conscious than ever before. Rather than stand idly by, students around Australia are committed to getting involved with causes they believe in to contribute to positive change.
