Getting real-world experience while you study doesn’t necessarily mean taking a paid part-time job. Volunteering is an excellent way to expand your skills, meet new people and gain an understanding of Australian culture and workplaces.

Even though volunteer work isn’t paid, the experience of volunteering is valued by Australian employers. It shows you have broad interest and skills, as well as a motivation that goes beyond wages or salary. Plus, you’ll have the sense of satisfaction that comes from helping others.

How to become a volunteer

There are thousands of exciting volunteer opportunities with Victorian community groups and non-profit organisations in areas from animal welfare to the arts to migrant services and more.

Volunteering Victoria is an organisation that can connect you with resources to find the perfect volunteering role for you. There’s a wealth of information on their website, including a search facility and learning opportunities.
