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. We offer volunteer roles across our programs, as well as opportunities to help out at events.

Cultivating Community is a committed to child-safety. All volunteers are required to undergo a National Police Check, a Working with Children Check where necessary, provide two referees and sign our Child Safety Policy.

Current Opportunities

After School Cooking

Part of our Food Systems Projects, 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.

Meet and Eat

Meet and Eat Community lunch is a free lunch where participants cook nutritious, affordable, culturally diverse dishes and then sit together to share the meal before cleaning up together. The role of volunteers is to assist with setting up and packing up, work with participants to create elements of the meal and generally participate in the session helping to ensure everyone is engaged and involved.
