We would not be where we are today without the help of our tireless and selfless volunteers who give of their time to raise money for Life Education, or help spread the word about our important work. Thank you so much!
Interested in volunteering?
Life Education can offer a range of volunteer opportunities that:
- Fit your schedule
- Match your interests
- Build your skills
- Can be done from home
- Can be short or long term
Tasks can be specific or general. You can help on your own, or get a group of your friends and family together and turn it into something fun and social. In some areas we also have established committee support groups you can join.
Contact Life Education to find out what you can do to help.
Don’t forget, you can also create a community fundraising challenge and support us in that way.
Want to get your colleagues involved?
We can tailor a fun team-building program just for your company! To find out more about employee volunteering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1300-HAROLD (1300 427 653). Take a look at the other ways your company can help Life Education.
Studying and want some real world practice?
Some Life Education offices can provide flexible and part-time volunteer opportunities for tertiary students. Contact us if you would like to gain valuable experience while helping a good cause. It may even be possible to arrange a short or longer-term internship with Life Education to immerse you in a range of projects while you complete your studies.

Where can I volunteer?
Life Education has local offices and communities throughout Australia who welcome volunteers.
How do I apply for a volunteer role?
Get in touch with us here letting us know which state you are from, and what kind of volunteering interests you.
How much time would I have to give?
This depends on what time you have available and what you'd like to do for us. We will try to be as flexible as possible. Any roles that require a more specific time commitment will clearly state this in the role description.
Can I claim expenses?
Volunteers should not be out of pocket as a result of volunteering for us! We reimburse reasonable travel costs to and from the organisation, travel while volunteering and other expenses by arrangement.
Will you interview me?
For most roles we’ll invite you to meet us for a chat. It’s a chance for you to find out more about the role and the organisation, and we can better match your skills and interests to the tasks we have available.
Do I need to supply references?
Yes, we will ask you to supply this information on your application form.
What skills and experience do I need?
Many roles just require your time, energy and enthusiasm! Volunteer role descriptions will list any additional skills or experience you may need for example, having a background in health, education, marketing and communication, office administration, business, project management or related disciplines. Given the nature of our organisation, all Life Education volunteers will need to have a police check and a ‘Working with Children’ card.
What support and training will I be given?
Volunteers receive an induction and will be given all the training and support necessary to feel confident in the role. Staff members are on hand to provide ongoing help and support.
None of the volunteer roles suit me, can I still help?
If you're interested in sharing your professional skills and there are no opportunities that match this, please contact your local Life Education office.
