Professional development workshops
The Boroondara Volunteer Resource Centre is an endorsed partner for Volunteering Victoria’s Continuous Development Program.
Program participants can achieve ‘points’ for participating in our recognised professional development activities.
To learn more about the program, see Volunteering Victoria - Continuous Professional Development.
Our bi-monthly network meetings bring volunteer managers of community organisations together to network, share experiences, raise issues and discuss challenges.
Boroondara Volunteer Skills Bank
The Boroondara Volunteer Skills Banks connects skilled professionals with community organisations seeking specialised skills.
A skilled professional from the Skills Bank could assist you with your organisation’s website, social media or bookkeeping, or even fill a board or committee position.
Learn more about the Boroondara Volunteer Skills Bank.
We have created a toolkit designed to equip, inspire and encourage community organisations to create skilled volunteer projects and roles.
The toolkit includes:
- information on the why and how of skilled volunteering
- tips on how to scope out and create skilled volunteer projects and roles
- simple tools and templates
- the benefits for your organisation in engaging skilled volunteers.
Volunteering Australia has developed The National Standards for Volunteer Involvement.
The national standards contain benchmarks to help organisations attract, manage, recognise and retain volunteers, and to manage risk and safety.
Volunteering Australia also publishes an annual State of Volunteering report that details trends, demographics, challenges and successes in the volunteering sector in Australia.
Not for Profit Law
Not for Profit Law has developed a number of resources to assist organisations to understand their legal obligations and manage risk in relation to volunteers.
