The SVA Service Award
By volunteering and logging your hours through the Student Volunteer Army (SVA) Service Award app, you can add essential skills to your CV while building your confidence and making friends.
Any student who has given at least 25 hours of voluntary unpaid time to serve others may qualify for an award. Service could include Peer Support leadership, coaching or refereeing, or doing work for an outside organisation such as the SPCA or RDA.
The SVA Service Award is a free online platform where volunteers can record and reflect on their volunteering hours. Volunteers work towards physical badges – Member, Bronze, Silver and Gold – to acknowledge the work they do in their community, whether it be for their school, whānau, or local community.
