Special Event Volunteering Print E-mail
Feb 04, 2015
Volunteering for special events is an alternative to volunteering on a regular basis. Volunteering on a regular basis can be challenging as it may not fit with other commitments and lifestyle so special event volunteering could be a great alternative.

Volunteers are vital when it comes to events.  They can be involved in the event management, support planned activities on the day, help keep everyone entertained or generally organised.  It might be a sporting event like the Corporate Head of the River, a fun run, a cycling event or a charity golf day. It might be a festival or other awareness raising or fundraising event for a community organisation.

If you are interested in special event volunteering, contact us and we will keep you up to date with opportunities.

Emergency volunteering

Volunteering Geelong has been a key partner supporting Volunteering Victoria's new HelpOUT emergency volunteering service. This service operates year-round. The service registers interested volunteers and links them to organisations working in disaster-affected communities when help is needed.

Volunteering to help in an emergency can be a rewarding and enriching experience.

Register now to offer your help when it is needed most.

Through HelpOUT, everyday Victorians can register their interest in helping communities impacted by an emergency.  HelpOUT then matches people with rewarding volunteering opportunities that support identified community needs by partnering with the organisations working on the ground in affected communities.

People who want to volunteer can:

    Easily register their interest and availability online or over the phone
    Specify their preferred availability and the skills they can offer
    Be contacted by Volunteering Victoria's HelpOUT team and offered suitable volunteering opportunities as they become available

Eligible organisations involved in emergency management can:

    Register as a HelpOUT client organisation
    Receive tailored information and support to help prepare for emergency volunteering
    Submit requests for volunteers to assist with specific tasks before, during or after an emergency

For more information, read the Frequently Asked Questions or call us on (03) 8327 8560.
