SVA Clubs Leadership Training

SVA Clubs Leadership Training

SVA will host its first Club Leadership Training from 18-20 November for tertiary students who are committed to operating or establishing an SVA Club on their campus. 

The conference will be attended by incoming leadership team members from each of SVA’s University Clubs as well as a number of current members who will help share knowledge, create best practices and together grow the cultures of service on tertiary campuses. 

Any group of students from a tertiary institution in New Zealand or Australia who are committed to starting or who have been selected to operate an SVA Club are welcome to apply to attend. 



SVA will also co-host a discussion with volunteer professionals, staff and students associations from 3-5pm on Friday 18th of November (in person and online) focused on sharing knowledge on growing service cultures on tertiary campuses.

(All ground costs including airport transfers are covered with some travel scholarships available to support those from outside of Auckland to travel.)
