Student Volunteering

Education today for change tomorrow

Communiteer is partnering with AVI (Australian Volunteers International) to unite student volunteering and mentoring.

The pathway to employment for university students has never been more uncertain or competitive. Students need connections and guidance to broaden their horizons and tackle real challenges outside the classroom.

But above all, they want a career with purpose.

Combine learning outcomes with making a difference in the world.

I trust Communiteer. We trust Communiteer will do the right thing to find and facilitate impactful opportunities that students can take up and experience because I can see the NFP sector having that trust in what you guys do.

Being successful in the workplace isn’t just about technical knowledge. You need practical skills, transferable skills. Understanding what it means to be ready and what it takes to be successful in the workplace.

We’ve received brilliant feedback from the mentors and mentees who’ve found value in the conversations and the relationships that have developed over the program. There’s an exceptional generation of highly talented young people about to enter the workforce.
