CQUni Sydney lends a hand to Exodus Foundation 

Staff and students at CQUniversity Sydney are making a difference to the lives of the less fortunate through their volunteer work with the Exodus Foundation.

Learning Skills Unit tutor Julia Doyle has been volunteering each Monday at the Redfern Tutorial Centre in the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence since 2011.

Julia and many literacy volunteers at the Centre have worked with students to improve their reading and writing.  

One student in particular said he hoped he would be the first in his family to attend university, and was so grateful for the program that he fundraised over $2000 to contribute to the Exodus Foundation.

The Exodus Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation which seeks to empower Australians through community welfare, healthcare and education.

Staff and students at the CQUniversity Sydney campus are heavily involved in working with the organisation, including feeding the homeless at the Loaves & Fishes Restaurant, Night Van and Food Distribution Program.
