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.

Beach Care

We have teamed up with the Centre for Coastal Management to host regular Beach Care sessions. We rotate between Gold Coast beaches to participate in planting, weeding and clean beach action. Free lunch is provided.

The next session will take place during Orientation Week in Trimester 2.

Bush Care

We have teamed up with the Mount Gravatt Environment Group to carry out Bush Care sessions in the tranquil bushland in Toohey Forest. The sessions involve removing invasive vegetation and building pollinator links to support bees, birds and butterflies. Free transport is provided from Nathan campus.
