MPA Volunteer Program

The MPA has a well-established volunteer program that runs every semester. Our volunteers are integral to orientations, social events and trips run by the MPA.

As well as helping out the MPA, our volunteers are exposed to new experiences and develop skills that will help them in their future careers, including communications skills, teamwork and time management. And at the risk of getting all warm and fuzzy about volunteer work, don’t underestimate that great feeling you get when you know that your efforts are helping out other postgraduates!

Plus, volunteering is also a great way to meet other like-minded people, gain insight into the work we do, and contribute towards making the postgraduate community a better place to be.

MPA Volunteers Give Back @ Hamdova Cafe

In view of expanding the volunteer programme to incorporate elements relating to social responsibility and community engagement, mpa has established links with the salvation army and will be organising a day at the Homdava Cafe for it’s students enrolled on the volunteer programme.

The Hamodava Café is a welcoming venue providing breakfast, lunch, coffee and tea, as well as support to people from all walks of life, especially those living on the margins of society. Hamodava Cafe’s primary purpose is about building relationships with people and developing a strong sense of belonging and acceptance for all and to assist them out of their current state of homelessness.

Date: Monday, 24 April 2017
Time: First half of the day
Venue: City
