University Volunteer Program

What are the challenges facing universities?

The pathway to employment for university students has never been more uncertain or competitive.

Students need access to connections, guidance and opportunities to broaden their horizons and tackle real challenges outside the classroom.

Communiteer is bringing skill-based volunteering and mentoring together to create a guided experience for students preparing for their transition into the workforce.

This program will empower students to develop their technical and transferable skills, establish their professional network and build their awareness of the social and economical challenges that will form the foundations of their careers.

Pathway to Employment

In partnership with AVI (Australian Volunteers International) between August and December, Communiteer brought together university students and corporate volunteers for a 12-week mentoring program.

During this program, we also provided access to virtual volunteering where students could collaborate on skilled volunteering projects.

Our Pathway to Employment campaign formed a pilot to build insights and UX research to continue the development of a university program, resulting in the holistic offering we have created for you!

Resources & Case Studies

As Communiteer is a platform that allows volunteers to give their time, grow their sense of purpose and connect with community leaders, it was a natural fit to participate in this year’s National Student Volunteer Week for 2020.

In celebrating #NSVW20 we created a webinar to promote student volunteering, shared various pieces of content on social media and participated in the University of Sydney Business School Careers Expo.
