If you are not a current student, you may be interested in volunteering at Council.
Council is committed to supporting individual members of the public and community groups who choose to volunteer their time to enhance the provision of services to the community.
Green space our place
The Green Space Our Place volunteer program allows locals to undertake gardening and landscape management in areas throughout our region.
Our volunteers are a diverse and eclectic bunch of people, who share the passion of working outside in the beautiful natural environment and enhancing our regions green areas.
Some of our volunteers aim to gain employment in horticulture, and whether still studying and accumulating practical hours, or getting experience in the industry, we support their efforts towards employment through volunteering with our program.
The Go Clubs Volunteer Program aims to link potential volunteers with appropriate community clubs to provide a benefit to both the volunteer and the organisation.
Cultural Services Volunteer Program
Council’s Cultural Services Team delivers an exciting program of projects and events each year catering to all sectors of the community around our beautiful city and unique venues, contributing to the creative diversity in the Far North.
We aim to give our volunteers a productive and positive experience, working together with us to present a vibrant program of community events throughout the year.
Ecofiesta is a day of stellar performances, eco-workshops and a massive expo of sustainable living solutions and clean tech. The event would not be possible without the passionate community groups, businesses, volunteers and creatives growing sustainability and environmental stewardship in our community.
