Join our Group Volunteering Program

Is your team looking to participate in volunteering opportunities?

The Centre for Volunteering has a matchmaking service matching groups of volunteers with opportunities from our not-for-profit member organisations. We have an array of volunteer opportunities to suit groups and individual volunteering in areas such as youth, environment, aged care, social welfare, animal welfare and sport.

We are a fee-for-service program and have several packages to suit your organisation’s volunteering needs from one-off events, annual programs to skilled volunteering opportunities. The Centre for Volunteering will help your organisation establish and improve your volunteering program.

Using our extensive knowledge and links with the not-for-profit community, we at The Centre match corporations with a suitable not-for-profit partner/s and facilitate their employees to volunteer their time in a structured way with measurable outcomes.  We can accommodate corporate teams of all sizes.  The average length of an activity is half to a fulls day.
