Connect with the local community and make a difference

The Griffith Mates offer volunteering opportunities throughout Brisbane and Gold Coast communities, providing domestic and international students the chance to pay it forward and make a difference. Each session is facilitated by a local community organisation and the Griffith Mates to connect students with a local experience, event or environmental initiative.
