The Volunteering Expo is now an ANNUAL event for us. The Expo is a one-stop shop for people to find out about volunteering opportunities across the Canberra Region.

Everyone is invited to attend, entry for the public is free!

The Expo attracts a diverse range of exhibitors from every sector, including community organisations, environment, sport, tourism, business, arts, education, science and emergency management.

As many as 60 exhibitors attend each year – so attendees have the chance to explore a great range of organisations that are looking for volunteers.

We pride ourselves on delivering an informative event for our guests free-of-charge, so everyone can learn about volunteering in the Canberra community.
