Boroondara Volunteer Skills Bank

The Boroondara Volunteer Skills Bank connects community organisations who need short-term or flexible support with professionals who have the skills to provide that support.

More than 800 skilled professionals are registered with the Skills Bank and can be reached via the member portal.

These people offer a meaningful opportunity to contribute to your organisation in numerous ways – it could be helping with your organisation’s website, marketing or IT or they might fill a board or committee position.

Find out more on our Boroondara Volunteer Skills Bank page.

Professional development

The BVRC runs free workshops for volunteer leaders and is an endorsed partner for Volunteering Victoria’s Continuous Development Program. Program participants can achieve ‘points’ for participating in our recognised professional development activities.
