Active Volunteering students support their community in many ways.

They help at neighbourhood centres, aged care homes, community gardens, op shops, school canteens, and sporting competitions. Students cook for those in need, provide IT audits and administration, create awareness campaigns, raise much-needed funds, assist younger grades with learning, and many more good causes.
