At Swinburne, we offer our students the opportunity to volunteer throughout the university and wider local community. Volunteering your time towards a worthy cause is a great way of showing the leadership skills and passion that employers are looking for in the workforce. 

  • Open Day 2023

    Volunteer at Open Day

    Volunteering at Open Day is easy to do and there are lots of reasons to get involved.

    You can earn credited hours towards the Swinburne Student Life Volunteering Program and you get free stuff too. Like lunch, coffee and a t-shirt. 

  • Share your passion for STEM

    Here's your chance to inspire high-school students, gain professional skills and boost your career!

    If you're enrolled in a science, technology, engineering or mathematics degree, you can apply now to become an In2science mentor.

    In addition to inspiring the next generation of STEM students, mentors gain access to exclusive professional development workshops and industry networking events – a sure way to make your CV stand out.


Keen to develop your leadership skills? Swinburne's leadership programs are designed to help build your skills through workshops, events and other opportunities. By getting involved, you’ll meet new people, enhance your employability and get out of your comfort zone – lead the way!
