volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, make new friends, try something new and learn new skills to enhance employment opportunities. Make a difference to the community and Get Mooving into one of our volunteer roles. Volunteering is a two way exchange – you will gain as much as you put into your role.

Opportunities to volunteer include one-off, short term and long term. There will be a role that suits your interest, motivation, availability and location.

We also have a number of flexible student placement opportunities within our programs where you will gain practical experience alongside a supervisor who will provide support and direction.
