Join us for National Volunteer Week!

National Volunteer Week is Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteering. During the week, we acknowledge and celebrate the contribution of volunteers in our community.

Every year during National Volunteer Week, we organise two key events – Volunteering Expo and Volunteering Conference (formally known as Volunteering Symposium) to promote volunteering in the community and upskill professionals in the volunteer landscape.

The Volunteering Expo

The Volunteering Expo is a fun and interactive event for the Canberra community to find their next volunteering role.

Whether you are passionate about the environment, community welfare, education, science, arts, or media, there is something for everyone at the expo.

Join us at the expo to start volunteering in the area that aligns with your interests and values and gain valuable experience while positively impacting your community.


The Volunteering Conference

The Volunteering Conference is a full-day professional development program that brings together volunteer managers, volunteer coordinators, and subject matter experts and provides a platform to share insights and best practices in the volunteering landscape.

Join us to build capability, foster collaboration, and spark inspiration!
