We host a variety of events to promote volunteering opportunities to the community.
Event details will be added here when available.
National Volunteer Week
National Volunteer Week is an annual celebration that recognises the many positive contributions volunteers make to our community, and is held in May.
Celebrate National Volunteer Week with the launch of our new Volunteering Directory, where you can explore different local volunteer organisations and find one that aligns with your interests, skills and values.
Volunteer Leader network meetings
Our bi-monthly network meetings bring volunteer managers of community organisations together to network, share experiences, raise issues and discuss challenges.
Find out about meetings coming up in 2021.
Boroondara Volunteer Expo
The Boroondara Volunteer Expo is held in March each year. It is a great place to learn about volunteering opportunities, how you can gain new skills, experience, and make a meaningful difference.
Connect with organisations across a wide range of sectors and causes, including:

Discover volunteering opportunities that complement your interests, what you enjoy, and any existing skills and experience you may have.
