Our key aims are:
-To build relationships with regional communities-Supporting & enacting needs-based volunteer projects-Fostering student development-Respect for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Island Peoples
Each year we plan road trips where forty volunteers hop on a bus and complete service projects across regional Queensland. The aim is to not only lend a land to local communities, but allow students to understand regional values and the social issues that can affect communities throughout Queensland.. Throughout the year, Big Lifters look to build partnerships with organisations and student groups both in and out of the QUT community to get involved in volunteering events and social opportunities.
If you want to volunteer in a positive learning environment, develop your leadership skills and make new lifelong friends, this Club is for you.
