Discover your potential
Volunteering allows you to make a real and lasting change in your community. In return for your time, you'll learn from people with diverse backgrounds, ages and cultures and make lasting friends with others.
Volunteering has given me a sense of being able to change the world around me, just by seeing what the power of good teamwork, and really putting your mind to something, can do and achieve.
Jack, Monash Law Students' Society Secretary
Volunteering has been proven to enhance job readiness and employability. By deciding to volunteer you demonstrate that you are motivated and capable of inspiring others. You'll also have the opportunity to refine your negotiation skills, develop sound leadership experience and gain the advantage of a professional support network.
At Monash we make it easy for people to get involved, by giving you access to on-campus volunteer roles and exclusive opportunities provided by local-community partners. You can also embed volunteering as part of your degree through work placements and programs.
Whether it's helping out locally, joining an overseas placement program, or standing up as an ambassador for an issue that you care about, there is no better way to build confidence and discover your own potential.
