Volunteer opportunities

There are a number of ways to get involved with volunteering at Sydney.

Compass – find your way to higher education
The Compass project aims to encourage primary and secondary school children to stay in school and go on to study at university. Student volunteers are asked to bring their skills, enthusiasm and energy to this grassroots volunteer program. Full training is provided.

Research projects
Have a look at the Volunteer for Research Studies page or keep an eye out for Student News in your student inbox each week, where academics, postgraduate students and research units post volunteer opportunities for a broad range of research projects.

University of Sydney Union Volunteer Program
The USU's volunteer opportunities provide scope for personal and professional development, the chance to make new friends, and an ideal way to become active and get involved.

Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience
Alumnus Jack Manning Bancroft set up the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) during his student days to encourage Indigenous students to go on to higher education and complete their studies with the support of a mentor. Take part in encouraging widening participation in higher education.
