Further information

Guild Volunteering

If you have ever wanted to make a difference, get involved in the community or take on a cause, then consider becoming a volunteer.

Guild Volunteering provides students with the opportunity to get off campus and make a difference in the real world. We aim to give you the opportunity to do good things for people and the planet in a way that broadens your mind, introduces you to new people, and provides you with skills you just can't get in the classroom.

Guild Volunteering also provides a number of volunteering opportunities that are eligible for display on your supplementary academic transcript. We can even help you kick-start your own transcript recognised volunteering program with our Internship. Check out our website or Facebook for the latest details.

Approved volunteering activities will be published on your Volunteering Activity Statement which you can generate from studentConnect. Your volunteering activities will be updated periodically through either Guild Volunteering, Student Support Services, UWA Albany or UWA Sports. Changes to your Volunteering Activity Statement can be made by contacting your volunteering administrator.

Orientation

ConnectMe@UWA

When you volunteer to become a UniMentor you will automatically become part of the ConnectMe@UWA program. You will be assigned a number of students who maybe new to Perth and UWA, and will include, domestic and international students. Mentors will contact these students (by text, Facebook, Skype, WeChat, phone or email) prior to their arrival at UWA to find out if they:

  • are aware of a number of services available to them and where they can find them, such as the available Support Services and Housing Office
  • have activated their student email
  • have general questions about settling in to UWA
  • are interested in attending ConnectMe social events to enable them make new friends and discover what Perth has to offer.

Volunteers can use resources, such as computers or phones, provided by the ConnectMe@UWA staff. The nature of contact with students will be determined by your group's needs.

Open Day

Become a volunteer

On Sunday 14th August 2016, thousands of prospective students and the general public will descend on The University of Western Australia to find out what the University has to offer. We will need volunteers throughout the day to man a number of help tents, hand out maps, programs, direct people to venues and answer any general questions that visitors may have.
