VSA NSW is a not-for-profit organisation comprising of nearly 2,000 students spanning five different universities:
- The University of New South Wales
- The University of Sydney (Camperdown & Cumberland)
- University of Technology Sydney
- Western Sydney University (Bankstown, Parramatta & Campbelltown)
- Macquarie University
Our members aspire to develop their skillsets and networks, both professionally and on a personal level, by engaging in social participation through community, cultural, leadership, and social activities.
VSA NSW encourages its pool of members to be culturally diverse. By connecting students from a variety of ethnic backgrounds who share an appreciation of the Vietnamese culture, it allows for a heightened understanding of the similarities and appreciation and differences between diverse cultures.
VSA NSW’s mission for 2017 is to provide a platform to develop the knowledge and capabilities of youth, empower the community through volunteering and charity opportunities, and to maximize all opportunities given to assist those in need. All whilst staying true to VSA’s values and celebrating the Vietnamese culture with the students’ of NSW.
We have a number of specialised portfolios designed to advance our organisational objectives and tailor our services to enrich our members.
In NSW, the State Committee oversees the University VSA branches that operate independently to deliver a tailored experience to their respective members.
“VSA will always impact my sense of self and my perspective on life to see that in celebrating our differences as people, we are able to discover our strengths.”
“VSA has helped me be a better leader by giving me the opportunity to nurture and watch those around me grow and, in turn, help me grow as a person.”
“VSA gives me the rare opportunity to lead and guide my peers toward achieving their goals, while they support me in my own endeavours.”
