The Wellbeing Warriors Volunteer Program is a terrific volunteer opportunity for current students to get involved in promoting wellbeing across the university community.

The program is a joint venture between Student Health & Wellbeing and the AUU. We know what an important role volunteers play in planning, promoting and running wellbeing initiatives throughout the year and we can't wait to welcome you to the team.

  • About the program

    Volunteers will be able to take on a variety of roles including:

    • Event planning, coordination and support - develop ideas, host and help out on events across all three campuses, including Mental Health Awareness Month and University Mental Health Day
    • Resource development - test and develop new, or redevelop existing, health and wellbeing resources, including online resources like the Wellbeing Hub website and Being Well Living Well
    • Consultation and feedback - participate in focus groups, contribute to campaign development, and inform and support the implementation of the Student Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
  • Participant benefits

    In addition to offering participants the opportunity to contribute to student health and wellbeing initiatives at the University, the program also offers participants the following:

    • Flexibility - you choose which events and activities you want to contribute to, which means you get to choose how and when to volunteer
    • Professional development opportunities in events management - working with the AUU and Student Health and Wellbeing, you'll have the opportunity to learn about managing campus-wide events like Mental Health Awareness Month
