Being could not achieve what it does without the invaluable work of our volunteers.

If you are looking to get involved part-time on a volunteer basis with a worthy cause; or to get some hands on experience in a fantastic not-for-profit organisation; or even to develop a particular set of skills, then we might have the ideal solution for you.

Pick your hours, and your preferred tasks and we will do our best to match your capabilities and interest.

Being is looking for volunteers in the following areas

  • Media and communications
  • Event management
  • Administration
  • Policy research
  • Grant writing
  • Social media

If you’re interested in any of these opportunities, contact Being at  info@being.org.au .
