Want to help an international student?

Are you an alum with up to 10 years’ work experience post-graduation? Would you like to reconnect with the University of Auckland in a meaningful way and meet some interesting students and other alumni along the way? NZ Workplace Insights, a programme for first-year international students that helps them gain a deeper understanding of the NZ work environment, needs alumni volunteers!

What it involves:

  • Time-frame is 1 August – 26 September 2017.
  • A casual social occasion on 1 August at Old Government House (OGH) where you will meet fellow alumni and the students.
  • A couple of hours of your time to spend your student about your career journey and possibly show them around your workplace.
  • A low-key debriefing and celebration event at OGH on 26 September after the programme has concluded.

 

What’s in it for you?

  • Enjoy a rewarding volunteer experience
  • Serve as a role model 
  • Build relationships and connect
  • Learn about the University of Auckland student experience of today.
