Training for volunteers

Step into Volunteering Sessions are held in various locations around the state and are facilitated by our friendly team of staff and volunteers who are happy to chat to you about everything volunteering.

In-person Step into Volunteering sessions (see upcoming dates below)

This is a free informal workshop for anyone who is interested in volunteering. This session will provide you with an informal introduction into volunteering in your community, how best to search for positions and identify the types of positions that are suited to you that you’ll enjoy.

Come along and learn about the benefits of volunteering, the variety of opportunities available and the steps to becoming a volunteer.

Video information session

If you are unable to attend a face to face session, Volunteering WA has created a video version of the Step into Volunteering information session to provide you with an overview of the benefits of volunteering, the different types of roles, and where you can find your next volunteering opportunity.

Volunteering is a life-changing experience.
