Happy International Volunteer Day

Thursday, December 5, 2019


It's International Volunteer day today (5 December 2019) and an opportunity to appreciate the work done by the large number of volunteers who are a crucial part of the Initiatives of Change Australia family.

IofC has, since its inception, been a heavily volunteer-led social movement. Volunteers don't just 'help' or provide support functions. Many volunteers lead programs, provide expertise in their fields and act as mentors and guides. Some have been long-term volunteers who have dedicated their lives to the work of IofC. 

This is our message to all of them who make it all work here at IofCA.


In 2018-2019, 9000+ hours of voluntary work supported IofCA's programs and events, through a passionate network of over 150 volunteers.

That’s an incredible collective effort!

We are so proud to work with a volunteer community who have chosen to cast a vote for a new story; A vote to strengthen peace and build trust in people's lives, families and communities across the country.

"Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy.  You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.”  - Anonymous

There are many areas you can volunteer in, depending on your skills sets and where we have a need. If you are interested, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator with an introduction about yourself, your motivation, and your area of interest. We'd love to hear from you!
