Volunteer with us

Cultivating Community began in 1998 thanks to a group of passionate volunteers.  To this day volunteers play a vital role in every aspect of our work.

 

We are committed to ensuring our volunteers are a good fit for each role we offer to guarantee the best outcomes for both volunteers and our program participants. Find out about our current opportunities below, and register your interest via the Volunteer Registration Form (see below!)

Current Opportunities

Carlton Kitchen Library

Tag & Tester

 We receive many electrical goods donations that all need to be tested before our members can borrow!

After School Cooking

After School Cooking is a weekly cooking class where kids living on public housing estates come to learn life-long healthy food skills. Through participatory learning these kids are taught how to grow, cook and share food. Under the direction of the After School Cooking Facilitator, the primary focus of the volunteer role is to assist in engaging the kids with the program, helping to develop their cooking and social skills and promoting an appreciation of healthy, delicious food.
