One of the best ways to meet people and feel more connected to the local community is to volunteer while you study in Perth.
If you would like to give your time to the local community while doing something fun and meaningful, you should consider volunteering at one of Perth’s many charitable organisations or community programs.
Volunteering provides you with new opportunities, many of which will help you learn about yourself and others, while offering pathways to future career opportunities. Having volunteer experience on your resume or transcript can also make you a stronger candidate when applying for jobs.
Many of Perth's education institutions have strong ties to local and national charities. Why not find out about volunteer groups and programs at your university or college? Below are some ways you can look into volunteer programs while you study.
No matter where you are studying in Perth, Volunteering WA can help you connect with a variety of community organisations for short-term or long-term volunteer opportunities.
