Event volunteering

Volunteering for events is an exciting, fulfilling way to give back to your community


Event volunteering is an ideal way for busy people to volunteer, with many opportunities offering short-term or one-day commitments. From local community fairs, fun runs and arts festivals, to international sporting matches and music festivals, there are volunteer opportunities to suit every interest, skill and availability.

These volunteering events can also encompass fundraising, marketing, pre-event administration, participant bag packing, assisting with set up and pack down, registrations, conducting raffles and photography. 

Here at Volunteering Queensland, we are also involved in event management and volunteer programs for such events. 

An example of this event coordination is the G20 Leaders Summit Volunteer Program in 2014, where 600 G20 volunteers and volunteer managers catered and contributed to the Summit’s success, which will be engraved in Brisbane’s historic legacy. We have also supported Brisbane City Council with Homeless Connect since 2006, by recruiting and managing volunteers for their one-day event that links people experiencing homelessness with vital services that many of us take for granted.
