National Student Volunteer Week 2020 (#NSVW20) runs from 10 - 16 August. Celebrating #NSVW20 is an opportunity to acknowledge the impact that student volunteers make through volunteering.
#NSVW20 is also an opportunity to enable students to try volunteering!
Education providers, volunteer organisations and students all over Australia will be celebrating #NSVW20 through a variety of events, activities and campaigns that celebrate student volunteers and connect young people with opportunities to get involved in volunteering. Due to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, online activities are encouraged and smaller in-person events if it's safe to do so.
There are thousands of students who give, grow, and connect through volunteering. This contribution has a major impact on communities and causes, on both the national and international stage.
“Collective Impact: Give.Grow.Connect” is the theme of #NSVW20. Student volunteers lend a hand and add real value to the community. Together they make a substantial collective impact on Australia. When they give to a community or cause, student volunteers grow and flourish. They gain knowledge and create change. Through volunteering, student volunteers create their own social and professional networks. They connect with peers and people who share their same passion and interests.
National Student Volunteer Week has been celebrated in Australia since 2013.
Volunteering Queensland is proud to manage National Student Volunteer Week in collaboration with Volunteering Australia and all State and Territory Peak Volunteering Bodies.
