Coordinated and delivered nationally by Volunteering Queensland since 2013 and supported by Volunteering Australia and all State and Territory Peak volunteering bodies, National Student Volunteer Week 2021 (#NSVW21) acknowledges and celebrates student volunteers, and promotes volunteering to students and young people across Australia.
This year National Student Volunteer Week will be 9 - 15 August 2021.
We invite all education providers, volunteer organisations and students across the country to participate in National Student Volunteer Week. In 2021, all participants will have access to resources to assist with planning and executing volunteering activities as well as promoting volunteer events and campaigns.
National Student Volunteer Week gives students the opportunity to lead others in connecting to their community and offering kindness. Students are provided with the chance to explore the personal and professional benefits of volunteering, which include valuable work experience, enhanced feelings of self-worth, refinement of values, increased understanding of people, local and global issues, and reduced social isolation. NSVW also recognises the significant skills, ideas, enthusiasm, creativity, and time that young people contribute through volunteering.
