Volunteering Programmes


The power of your time to create change

United Way’s corporate volunteering programmes offer a unique opportunity to work as a team for the good of your community. They are designed to build staff engagement by working on sustainable community initiatives. Together, we improve the lives of the people in our communities.


Fun, engaging initiatives that have a meaningful impact

High school mentoring

Help inspire high school students by sharing your advice and experience through mock interviews, career days and tailored workshops.

A day in the life

Host a high school class for a day in the office, providing them insight into life in the ‘real world’ and your area of expertise.

Host work experience

Host a week long work experience for a high school student keen to see what office life is like. Sometimes the teachers learn more than the students!

Community events

Community events are a great way to engage in the community. Help out at a playgroup reading to kids or taking over the bbq, providing important time for the attendees to connect and engage.

Afternoon tea

Have afternoon tea with the elderly or people with a disability who are socially isolated.

Backyard blitz

Roll up your sleeves and help out with a backyard blitz transforming space for community partners needing to spruce up their environment.

Volunteer talents

Use your special talents to engage in a skilled volunteering role including marketing, governance, graphic design, event management or other strategic projects.

This is an amazing experience. Get involved in your own CSR day. It’s important to give back to the community.
