University action on COVID-19

The University Volunteer Program, coordinated by External Relations in conjunction with Volunteer Coordinators, is committed to stopping the spread of COVID-19 and ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of the University's volunteers and the wider community. We are closely monitoring the coronavirus situation, and our response is being shaped by the latest advice from Australian health and foreign affairs authorities.

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, gain experience and strengthen your resume.

There are many opportunities for students to volunteer across our Waite, Roseworthy and North Terrace campuses. You can choose to volunteer at events, mentor fellow students, work with children and even help the wider community through our partnerships.

Volunteering opportunities that are actively recruiting are available on the positions available page. Below is a comprehensive list of volunteering opportunities for current students.
