VOLUNTEERING FAQs

CAN I VOLUNTEER OVERSEAS WITH PLAN INTERNATIONAL AUSTRALIA?

We don't offer overseas volunteering opportunities – we prefer to recruit local volunteers from within the country to develop and sustain local skills and experience. If you're interested in volunteering overseas see the Australian Government's Australian Volunteers for International Development program.


WHAT SKILLS OR EXPERIENCE DO I NEED?

Some volunteer roles may require specific skills but most only require enthusiasm and a positive attitude! We support all office volunteers with on-the-job training.


WHO CAN VOLUNTEER?

Anyone! However you must be eligible to work in Australia according to the Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs guidelines. If you're from overseas you need a Visa that allows you to volunteer – find out more at the Department of Immigration and Citizenship.

All our volunteers must complete a Police Reference Check and sign our Child Protection Policy and Working with Children Code of Conduct.


WHEN CAN I VOLUNTEER?

Volunteers generally contribute one to two days per week but we can accommodate whatever time you can give; short-term commitments and annual corporate volunteering days are OK too. Volunteers work with us during business hours (8.30am–5.00pm, Monday to Friday), but sometimes work after hours or on weekends when helping with events.


"I LOVE THE ATMOSPHERE. I KNOW WHAT I DO IS APPRECIATED."

Retired teacher Liz Venn has volunteered with Plan International for 13 years. "I've sponsored children with Plan for almost forty years, so it was an obvious connection for me," she says. Recording letters from sponsors and children, sending letters to current supporters, and occasionally proof-reading publications are some of Liz's tasks. "I love the friendliness of the staff and other volunteers at Plan," she says. "I know what I do is appreciated."
