HASS Crew Volunteer Program

Are you a Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences student enrolled in your second semester or above? Are you looking for opportunities to volunteer and develop your employability skills? The Semester 2 HASS Crew Volunteer Program is for you!

The HASS Crew is a student-run initiative funded by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. We aim to help HASS students find their way around HASS, UQ and university life in general.

Working in collaboration with the HASS Student Futures Team, we organise events throughout the semester that aim to connect students, staff and alumni based on our common interest in the humanities and social sciences. Our events focus on orientation, study pathways, employability and cohort-building.

We want to make sure that we’re working on activities and issues that you care about, and so we’d like to get you involved. One way we are keen to involve students is through providing opportunities to volunteer and participate at various HASS Crew events throughout the semester.  Volunteering offers many rewards including an opportunity to improve your communication and team work, organisational skills, and overall employability.

In Semester 2 we are planning to provide additional opportunities to support your professional development through a series of workshops in addition to volunteering roles.  There will be opportunities to hear from seasoned professionals in areas such as project management, leadership skills development, and identifying and working to your strengths.

HASS Crew Volunteer Program Activities:

  • Volunteer Training Session (Thursday 12 July 11am-12pm followed by free lunch)
  • HASS Orientation Events (volunteer opportunity Tuesday 17 July 10am-4pm)
  • Skills Development Workshops (Weeks 1-3 + Week 10)
  • Informal hangouts (various)
  • HASS Crew Events (three HASS Crew volunteer opportunities throughout Semester 2)
  • Recognition and Reward - Celebration Event (end of semester celebration)

We're hoping to create a community of dedicated HASS students - it all starts with you!

This volunteer program is eligible to contribute to the UQ Employability Award.
