UCSA HELP Volunteers operate as the first port of call for students coming in to see the Advocacy and Welfare Team. As such, you will be interviewing students in order to gain as much information about their situation as possible. You will then present this information to the Student Advocate, who will help the student find a resolution to their concern. In addition to the interviewing you will gain an understanding of the Advocacy and Welfare Teams' processes, and will eventually be able to navigate appropriate courses of action for students under the guidance of the Student Advocate.

To apply to be a UCSA Help Volunteer you must be:

  • A senior Law or Psychology student at UC, i.e. in your 3rd year or above in 2019;
  • Of good standing in both character and academic ability;
  • Able to dedicate two hours per week during term time to UCSA HELP; and
  • Able to commit to one academic year as a UCSA HELP volunteer.

To apply, please complete the UCSA HELP Application Form, and email it to the UCSA Student Advocate Nathan Simkiss at: nathan.simkiss@ucsa.org.nz

For more information, please contact the UCSA Student Advocate.
