Big Lift is all about paying it forward by uplifting the people and communities around us. We began in 2011 as a student-run club under the QUT Guild (student government) enabling students of all ages and disciplines within QUT the opportunity to volunteer in service projects during an end-of-year bus trip to towns in regional Queensland. Since then, we have expanded into an Alumni chapter and have also partnered with QUT Leadership, Development & Innovation to evolve our little group into a recognisable QUT organisation. Our aims are to support regional communities through meaningful volunteering pursuits whilst enhancing our own understanding of rural life through conscious, reflective conversations, hands-on experience and practising respect for Indigenous Australians as the traditional owners of the land we live on.
