Volunteer

Are you passionate about volunteering? We need you.

The Volunteering Study at UWA is calling for participants to help analyse the relationship between personality and attraction to volunteering. Previous research shows that people who are highly extroverted and agreeable are more likely to volunteer. This research aims to find out how to attract all kinds of people to volunteer.

If you volunteer at least once a month, you are eligible to participate in the short two-part survey. With the findings, researchers will develop recruitment advertisements, testing whether they can attract people who are traditionally non-volunteers to volunteer. This will help to increase the volunteering pool, helping organisations find the right people, and potentially lead to further research discoveries.

Make a call for UWA

No one knows the value of a UWA degree better than a UWA grad. And no one is a better ambassador when it comes to talking with prospective students. If you're up for making a few calls, we can change all that and make UWA's conversion rate the envy of other unis.

Our focus in this first round will be prospective domestic postgraduate students who have received their letters of offer from UWA and are expecting a follow-up call. We'll give you everything you need to reach out to them and share your own experiences of studying here so they can imagine - and get excited about - their own.

Call in your own time or join with other grads in a telethon-style calling effort. Register your interest today to find out more.
