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.

National Student Volunteer Week 2018

National Student Volunteer Week aspires to challenge and celebrate young people who are striving to make change through volunteering.

On 13-19 August 2018, a wide variety of events, activities, forums and awareness-raising campaigns led by higher education providers and schools will take place nationwide.

Now in its sixth year, NSVW encourages meaningful and innovative student engagement to help students realise how much of a difference they can make; while also changing the way they volunteer to be more creative and genuine in their help and care for others.

This unique opportunity offers education providers the chance to celebrate, showcase and challenge their student volunteers.
