Thinking of volunteering?  

Whether you enjoy reading or chatting, want a quick project or a long-term commitment, have skills to share, or would like to learn something new, there's a volunteer role out there with your name on it! 

How to find a volunteer opportunity

We list many of our opportunities on GoVolunteer. If you want to find out more about an opportunity, you can express your interest via the website and your details will be sent to us.

You can also contact the Boroondara Volunteer Resource Centre directly if you don't see anything you fancy on GoVolunteer, if you need help working out what you'd like to do, or you just want to chat about volunteering.

Call us on 9278 4550 or email [email protected] and we'll get back to you.
