Victoria University of Wellington’s Student Volunteer Week

Victoria University is proud of its many student volunteers working on campus and in the wider community. For this year’s Student Volunteer Week, a range of opportunities will be available for students to give volunteering a go, and share the stories of current volunteers and how they are making a positive impact.

We are grateful to the organisations supporting us this year, such as Volunteer Wellington, Ronald Mcdonald House, Wellington City Mission, Vincentian Home for the Elderly, St Vincent de Paul’s, and Volunteering New Zealand.

Student Volunteer Week 2018 Webinar

Student Volunteer Week – Volunteering to Learn

Volunteering New Zealand is hosting a series of 30-minute episodes delivering a mixture of presentation and conversation style information. Our guest presenters will be speaking to local and international speakers as they explore topics on volunteering to help you better lead, manage and develop your volunteer workforce.

Just in time for Student Volunteer Week, the first speaker is Professor Kirsten Holmes of Curtin University.

In this seminar, we will consider what factors contribute to successful student volunteer programmes.

The Volunteering to Learn study was the first to examine all perspectives involved in university student volunteering. These include the students, universities, program managers, host organisations and voluntary sector peak bodies to enable successful outcomes for all.

This is an amazing opportunity to hear Kirsten speaking on this topic and, best of all, it’s absolutely free!



When: 1.30 pm, Thursday 19 April
Where: Your desk-top, phone or tablet
Fee: FREE!! Because it’s Student Volunteer Week
