Global Citizenship Volunteering projects are designed to introduce you to new people and places,  expand your understanding of different cultures throughout the world and engage with unique communities. 

These projects run for 2–3 weeks in both the inter-trimester break (June/July) and trimester 3 (Nov-Feb). Projects are open to students from all faculties and can involve credit. Read through the volunteering booklet for more information.

To see what Global Citizenship Volunteering is all about check out the following video from a recent project in Fiji:
