Welcome to Volunteering Geelong

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering Geelong is an independent not-for-profit organisation that is committed to enhancing the quality of life in the community, through the promotion and support of volunteering.

Volunteering Geelong was established in 1998 through the identification, by a number of individuals and members of the Geelong Volunteer Network (GVN), of the need for a "one stop shop" for volunteer recruitment and support.

Volunteers are the power behind more than 600,000 not for profit organisations in Australia. Even in the organisations that have paid staff (a minority), there is a heavy reliance on the goodwill, energy and skills of people who freely give their time and expertise to help out. To make things happen. To make the world just a bit better.

Imagine the possibilities is a Volunteering Victoria campaign to raise awareness of the value that volunteering plays in our community and the diversity of ways volunteering happens. It is part of Volunteering Victoria's mission to support the growth and empowerment of the volunteering community.
