Many opportunities are available right now in Boroondara and we can help you find the right one:

We list many of our opportunities on the GoVolunteer website. If you want to find out more, 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 the GoVolunteer site, or you need help working out what you'd like to do, or you just want to chat about volunteering:

The BVRC refers over 1,000 prospective volunteers to community organisations each year and 91% of volunteers who used the BVRC referral service said they would recommend it to family and friends.
