Students in the past have volunteered in a very wide variety of contexts including disability support, care for the elderly, environmental work, education, fundraising and event planning and many more.
Students should note that not all campus based volunteering activities are eligible for use as part of the Leadership Program, and any eligible for recognition on AHEGS won't be listed separately if counted towards the Leadership Program.
