Volunteering

The Student Hub welcomes students who want to help by volunteering their time and skills to assist other students. Volunteers can help share information about living, studying and working in Cairns, such as where to go, what to see and how to get around. They might also be called upon to provide contact information for course enrolments or part-time work opportunities.

There may be additional volunteer roles at Study Cairns events to ensure a successful and smooth event delivery. Volunteers undertake a variety of roles and can assist with functions including marshalling delegates, participant registration, food and beverage stations, logistics, event information, event coordination and much more.

Animals
Are you missing your dog and long dog walks? YAPS is an organisation that looks after abandoned dogs and is based in Yorkeys Knob. They are always looking for dog walkers and volunteers to help at fundraising events. To walk the dogs, you need to do a short course about the procedures at their shelter, but after that you can go there and take dogs out for walks. Click here for more info. 

Vulnerable people
Meals on Wheels provide home delivered meals to frail aged persons, younger people with disabilities and their carers so that they may remain healthy and secure in their home, reducing the risk of premature or inappropriate institutionalisation. This is particularly a great way for cookery students to get relevant work experience, while contributing to improving the lives of others. Click here for more info.
