Why volunteer?

Community engagement
Volunteering is a great way to apply the skills you have learned at university to making a difference in the community, while increasing your awareness around social issues.

Student employability
You will gain invaluable work experience and be given the chance to network and collaborate with global organisations such as IWDA, Red Cross and Amnesty International. Volunteering within your target profession is another option, and a great way to get your foot in the door. You’d be amazed at how often a volunteer position turns into a paid position: once an employer finds a good employee they don’t want to let them go! At the very least you will gain directly relevant experience and build contacts in the industry.

Student wellbeing
Evidence suggests that volunteering has a positive impact on people’s health and wellbeing, contributing to better moods, less anxiety and psychological stress. UniSA encourages students and staff to engage in the opportunities that become available, as part of our ongoing wellbeing strategy.
