On Friday 10 October 2014, Student Life will be hosting Volunteer For You (V4U) day.
V4U is a fun day-long event where the VU community get together and volunteer their time and skills to a variety of projects throughout western Melbourne. It's a dynamic way for us to give back to the local community and thank them for their ongoing support.
V4U was recognised as the Best Australian University Event in 2012 - so volunteer for V4U day to join in the fun and gain recognition for giving back.
We will provide lunch, t-shirt and cap, participant recognition and a celebration event.
