Volunteer With Us

Our volunteers are amazing people who give their time to support our programs, op shops, events, programs and offices throughout Australia.

Who can volunteer?

Our volunteers range from 18 to 85 years old. They come from all different backgrounds and bring diverse skill sets to our organisation. We value the support of every single one of our volunteers and would for love you to join us!

How your time will help children

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and become part of a community of committed supporters. It also gives you the opportunity to improve your skills and career prospects, and of course you'll be playing a vital role in helping us to save children's lives.

By donating your time, you can help us achieve three major breakthroughs for children:

  • All children survive. No child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday.
  • All children learn. Every child learns from a basic quality education.
  • All children are safe. Violence against children is no longer tolerated.

The benefits of volunteering for you

You not only help girls and boys in Australia and overseas when you volunteer for Save the Children; there are also big benefits for you too:

  • You'll learn new skills while using your existing ones.
  • You'll meet new people and make wonderful new friends.
  • ​You'll find out more about the issues affecting vulnerable communities both here in Australia and overseas.
  • You'll be going behind the scenes at one of Australia's largest aid and development agencies.
Each of our amazing volunteers have their own story to tell whilst working with Save the Children.

We have volunteering positions available in our offices and programs across Australia, except in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and the Northern Territory (NT).
