Education today for change tomorrow

Uni Web Illustrations (SEP)-01

Communiteer in partnership with AVI (Australian Volunteers International) is bringing university volunteering and mentoring together to create a guided experience for students preparing for their transition into the workforce.

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.

This program will empower students to develop their 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!

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.
