Become a Volunteer
Volunteers play a crucial role in the success of Support The Girls Australia. Support The Girls Australia is predominantly managed and run by volunteers being a non-funded grass roots organisation. Our volunteers are pivotal to us being able to support women and girls in Australian communities.
We have numerous roles for our volunteers and it is entirely up to them how they would like to donate their time. Nearly all our work is done during the working week, so availability during the week is vital. We also need people for our Outreach Projects. This requires people who have the capacity to be away for a few days.
If you are a business professional that has a skill set that can add value to our purpose and ethos we would love to hear from you. If you are wanting to make new friends or just give back to your community, or you would like to meet more people and want to be appreciated for the values you can bring to others come on board and join us.
We adhere to the National Standards for Volunteeers to ensure our Volunteeers are supported. We provide all our volunteers with training and ongoing training to ensure they are educated and supported across the board. We also have COVID-19 safe practices in place across the organisation.

The Outreach Project has multiple arms. There is the Street Outreach Project, Remote Outreach Project and our Service Outreach Project.
Street Outreach Project
The Street Outreach is supporting women and girls at various locations on the streets. We collaborate with other support services such as Orange Sky Laundry service. By working side by side, we can build stronger support systems for those women and girls in our communities that are most disadvantaged. For this we ideally prefer volunteers with some experience in dealing with trauma, or a social work background. It is not essential.
Remote Outreach Project
The Remote Outreach Project is exactly what it says. We are only too well aware that there are women and girls in some of the most remotest communities in our country that simply do not have access to the basic necessities in life. This is either due to remote location or the exorbitant cost of the items within their communities. For this we require volunteers that have the time and flexibility to be on the road for possibly a day or even a two-day trip.
Service Provider Outreach Project
Our aim for 2020 is to connect with a lot more service providers and host Bra Gifting days at their locations. This is twofold. Firstly, it allows us to support services and their clientele with a service that is unique, and they cannot provide, and it allows them to expand and compliment what they do for their clients. This gives us the capacity to support more women that we normally would not get an opportunity to support. The criteria for this role is the same as our Bra Fairy volunteers.
