This study investigated the prosocial behaviors of members from student voluntary clubs in Sagaing University of Education, Myanmar. A total of 200 BEd students who are members from six student voluntary clubs in Sagaing University of Education participated in this study. Descriptive research design and survey method were used. Findings revealed that mean percentage of emotional prosocial behaviour is highest and that of anonymous prosocial behaviour is lowest. There were significant differences in students’ altruistic and emotional prosocial behaviours as well as there was significant difference in their prosocial behaviours by gender at =0.05 levels. However, there was no significant difference in students’ prosocial behaviours by club type. It was also found that there were commonly positive high correlations between total prosocial behaviour and each tendency at =0.05 levels.
