O-Week at UNSW is one of the biggest and best orientation weeks in Australia. Every year, around 6,000 new students are welcomed to the University by the friendly faces of the O-Week volunteers.
Every year, approximately 170 enthusiastic volunteers known as Yellow Shirts get the chance to spend one unforgettable week helping incoming students find their feet and have fun at UNSW.
As one of the biggest orientation programs in Australia, Yellow Shirts is a highly sought-after volunteering opportunity for students every year.
O-Week volunteers are responsible for acting as an information point and successfully running tours and social activities (such as giving out fairy floss and hosting Campus Idol) for new students. Yellow Shirts also contribute to the University's presence at night events.
Apply online. Intake occurs around Week 8 of Semester 2.
Training over the summer break equips volunteers with all required skills as well as team bonding and campus knowledge.
