Our Work in Student Engagement

My volunteering experience with Communiteer and Study NSW was crucial in getting my first job. The skills and references I gained enabled me to ace the interview, which turned out to be a wonderful experience in itself.

Viswesh Narayan

Masters in Actuarial Studies

Volunteering has helped my mental health a lot, as I was lonely in the first months. Being a Study NSW Volunteer also helped me realise my self-worth and learn how I can build success and dreams from small steps.

Thao My Nguyen

Connections and experiences are priceless, and that is what this volunteering journey has truly exemplified for me. And I believe, there’s more for me to learn and share, the more I’m at the desk.
