Pathways to Volunteering



Volunteering is not only a great way to help others and connect with your community - it can be a part of your career plan and help you get onto the career path that's right for you.

The Volunteer Skillsbank works closely with the not-for-profit sector across the region, to make it easy to find the right kind of volunteering opportunity.

We can provide heaps of information and assistance to both the volunteer and the organisation in relation to volunteering and the not-for-profit sector. We help you to become volunteer ready with our Free Volunteer Pathways Session soon to be available on-line.

Volunteer Pathways gets you volunteer ready and much more to make sure you are prepared to start your volunteer journey.
