Volunteer in the Community


There are loads of opportunities available throughout the year that allow you to get out in the community and do some good!


Here are some of the favourites amongst our vollies:

Ardoch | Australian Children's Education Charity Volunteer to provide in-class literacy support to engage students in reading, writing and language exercises. You will be trained to work either one-on-one or with a small group of students, and help improve their confidence and engagement with their learning. 

Op Shops – There are various OpShops close to campus and inner-city suburbs that are looking to recruit volunteers for retail/customer service-based roles. These are flexible roles that don’t require any experience and training is provided!

Food for Change, Farm Volunteer - By volunteering at Food for Change you will become part of a community of like-minded people. You will be able to use your experience and skills to make a meaningful contribution in helping grow nutritious crops for those most in need and help alleviate food insecurity in Australia.
