School and university student volunteer programs

SVPI staff have academic and teaching backgrounds and are well placed to work with teachers and university course coordinators to design a volunteer program that fulfills all of your requirements.

We currently work with the Department of Nursing, University of Melbourne, the Department of Nursing, University of Western Sydney and the School of Health & Human Sciences, Southern Cross University to provide field trips and academic placements for their students.

We are friendly, flexible and have many fantastic volunteer opportunities for both university and school students. We are also always open to new ideas. We are also happy to work with individual students to develop a research or other project to fulfill any course requirements.

Please contact us for more information. We are happy to provide a quote and an initial program proposal to meet your requirements.
