Guild Guide Part 5: Volunteer

Guild Volunteering is your connection to meaningful volunteering opportunities with life-changing organisations, both on-campus and in the wider community.

A partnership between UWA, the Guild, and Volunteering WA, the Guild Volunteering venture is living proof that volunteering is of benefit to the student experience and complements the teaching and learning objectives of the University.

Volunteering is an incredible way to create impact, gain valuable skills, and have fun in an inclusive environment of like-minded people. Guild Volunteering provides these opportunities through day trips, regional trips, and events and regular micro-volunteering activities for those looking to volunteer without the ongoing commitment.

Get Started with Volunteering

Never volunteered before?

Don’t stress – here’s a few tips on what you should get organised before signing up to make everything run smoothly:

  • Consider your passions: we have volunteering opportunities for 14 areas of interest! Still not sure? Head to the Guild Volunteering office for a chat with our awesome team; they can point you to the perfect opportunity for you!
  • Alternatively, check the Guild Volunteering portal on CareerHub for all our volunteer listings.
  • Consider your schedule: how much time can you reasonably dedicate to volunteering? No matter how busy you are, there’s a volunteering gig for everyone!
  • Do you have your paperwork? Volunteers will need a WA Police Clearance and current Working With Children’s Check; we can help you obtain both of these to get you started!
