Volunteers and interns are valuable members of the Action on Poverty team. We rely on our volunteers to fundraise, assist with events and campaigns, and contribute their professional expertise to our operations.

Become a volunteer

We’re always looking for skilled volunteers to lend a hand. Our volunteers have provided IT support, enhanced our social media presence, and assisted our partner organisations.

We also take on interns regularly to assist our communications, fundraising and program teams. We have internship programs with UNSW Sydney, UTS, Macquarie University and Boston University, but also take on interns from other institutions.

Please contact us using the form below if you’re interested in volunteering.
