I enjoy the social club activities that the ELC Volunteer Program offers and that volunteers, like myself, can participate right alongside the students themselves.Luisa - ELC Intercultural Volunteer

Volunteer Award 2021

2021 Student Volunteer Group of the Year Award

The ELC team and our volunteers have again won the Vice Chancellor's Volunteer Group of the Year award. In response to the global pandemic and international border closures, the English Language Centre’s Intercultural Program and its volunteers moved to supporting students online from early 2020. As we all appreciate, the impacts of COVID-19 meant there was a sudden need to change how we operate, but the English Language Centre confronted those challenges to ensure students and Intercultural Volunteers felt connected no matter where they were physically located.

The impact of this program has included enhanced independent learning, relationship building and creating a sense of belonging and well-being in challenging times.

2018 Student Volunteer Group of the Year Award 

The ELC team and our volunteers have won the 2018 Volunteer Group Award. This award recognises the excellent job our Intercultural Program does in using volunteers to enrich the ELC student experience. The program, and the volunteers who participate, enhance our student’s experience through providing opportunities for English conversation and cross cultural exchange during organised social club events.
