Summary: Aus LEAP is a program that connects NSW International Students with local established community, charity, non-profit, and social enterprise organisations to undertake volunteering opportunities. Social Engagement will focus in two main aspects: ● Provide volunteering training to International Students by running workshops and inviting speakers so that International Students can nurture an interest in volunteering, build strong connections with locals, volunteers, learn local culture, and discover new personal and professional opportunities. ● Connect International Students to existing volunteering programs to learn about workplace culture in Australia and nurture their network by supporting social and environmental advocacies.
