Volunteering is the best way to give back to the community, develop your professional and personal skills and meet new people. We have opportunities on campus and in the community that are flexible and tailored for students to gain essential experience to add to their academic achievements.

UOW Buddies

The UOW Buddies program connects current UOW students with a group of UOW College students to make them feel welcome and to help them settle into Australian life while developing intercultural communication and leadership skills for volunteers. 

The program involves a weekly commitment over five weeks with different activities such as volleyball, an Aussie Culture Workshop, and Giant Games run by the volunteers every week. Free food from a different cuisine is also provided for lunch each week!
