SVA Annual Report
2020

SVA Annual Report 2020

In 2020, the Student Volunteer Army has seen many successes. We put together a grocery service in response to COVID-19 and saw 1000s of volunteers help those in need more than themselves. In addition, the SVA has had another great year with our primary, secondary, and tertiary level initiatives.

Ten Years of SVA

We’re celebrating ten years of the SVA: we’ve spent a decade actively teaching volunteerism and project management in primary schools, secondary schools and supporting students at tertiary level to mobilise volunteers across New Zealand and be the change they wish to see in their communities.
