Our Clubs are making a real difference, and having fun in the process

Following the success of the UC SVA Club over the past decade, the SVA Clubs programme now operates at five tertiary institutions across Aotearoa.

Clubs are headed by amazing executive committees who plan and facilitate volunteering opportunities for their members. Students lead the way to combat societal gaps while making participation easy, inclusive, and most importantly, enjoyable.

Being a part of a committee is a fun yet challenging experience where students go through a self-development journey while picking up transferable skills for their future careers, all while making a difference.
