"Volunteering through SUBU was a great opportunity for me to take alongside my main studies and part time employment.

I enjoyed the various choice of roles available through SUBU in the local and regional area, i.e. skills-based and qualifications, community and some course-related. Through my volunteering roles, I have extra value and more to offer both personally and for employability."

- Kenyah John, BU Student and SUBU Volunteer
