National Student Volunteer Week
National Student Volunteer Week (NSVW) is an opportunity to acknowledge the impact that student volunteers make through volunteering.
Education providers, volunteer organisations and students all over Australia celebrate NSVW with a variety of events, activities and campaigns that celebrate student volunteers and connect young people with opportunities to get involved in volunteering.
National Student Volunteer Week has been celebrated in Australia since 2013.
NSVW is all about:
- Celebrating, promoting and building support for student volunteering
- Encouraging discussion and innovation so that volunteering becomes more creative and impactful
- Supporting stronger relationships between the education and non-profit sectors
- Building the next generation of volunteers to help the community.

Volunteering Queensland is proud to manage National Student Volunteer Week in collaboration with Volunteering Australia and all State and Territory Peak Volunteering Bodies.
The Australian NSVW concept resulted from Volunteering Queensland's university roundtable which brought together key academics, researchers and community engagement managers from universities across Queensland; including Bond University, CQ University, Griffith University, Queensland University of Technology, and University of Queensland.
