National Student Volunteer Week

National Student Volunteer Week 2022 (Monday 8 - Sunday 14 August 2022) (#NSVW2022) acknowledges and celebrates student volunteers, and promotes volunteering to students and young people across Western Australia.

This year's theme is Passion. Opportunity. Change. which explores how students can realise their dreams and effect change across the world...and it all starts with the act of giving their time to a cause they believe in.

National Student Volunteer Week gives students the opportunity to lead others in connecting to their community by offering support and 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.
