Community volunteering is a great opportunity for individuals to connect with the people and places around them. Want to give back but don’t know how? There are many unique ways that people like you are giving back through volunteer community service.
The Gold Coast is renowned for hosting hundreds of events every year. As an event volunteer, you will provide much needed assistance to the organiser, as well as engaging with the local community, meeting new people and making new friends.
There are hundreds of individual volunteer positions that will suit your hobbies and interests. Whatever you’re passionate about, you can engage in these passions as a way to give back to the community.
Volunteer transport helps many people across the Gold Coast who are unable to travel via personal or public transport. Becoming a volunteer driver is a really rewarding experience, allowing you to meet new people and explore new places while helping others to accomplish the everyday tasks they wouldn’t otherwise be able to achieve.
Individuals from a corporate background are some of the greatest assets to a charity organisation, providing skills and knowledge to achieve the organisation’s goals.
Put theory into practice by providing much needed support and resources to local Not-For-Profit organisations. Volunteering during your studies builds your social awareness as well as provides vital work experience to increase your chances of getting employed.
One of the most common forms of volunteering with many organisations is supporting important causes and advocating for the welfare and rights of individuals.
We have partnered with Surf Clubs across the Gold Coast to ensure Australia’s most iconic beaches are accessible for everyone. Learn more about how you can help people with wheelchairs, who have difficulty walking or families with prams enjoy a day at the beach.
Around 40% of aged care residents across Australia experience some form of isolation or loneliness. You can help to decrease this statistic by volunteering as a community visitor to provide compassion, companionship and friendship.

“I am so grateful for the volunteer opportunity that your organisation gave to me. Because of your guidance and my vision, I am now studying to be a youth worker and starting my student placement. I cannot explain how happy I am right now and excited about making a difference in my community”
“I have volunteered for the Home Visitor program and have found it very rewarding. I was partnered with a lovely man and over coffee we have wonderful conversations about our lives, the world, and our own philosophies of life. It is a very important part of my weekly routine now and when I can’t visit, I miss it. The people at CVS are very helpful and supportive.”
“Realising the joy of giving without expectation through volunteering has been an invaluable experience for me. The sense of belonging with VGC has added to the experience.
The support, guidance and encouragement the approachable team provides is absolutely wonderful too. Thank you, Volunteering Gold Coast, for enriching my volunteering journey!”
