ASRC Volunteer Promotion

ASRC Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the ASRC. As a volunteer, you are joining a movement of supporters and advocates who strengthen the organisation while creating positive change for people seeking asylum. In addition offering ongoing volunteer opportunities, the ASRC hosts Information Evenings, Corporate Volunteers, Student Placement and Practical Legal Training students – scroll down for more info!


Current Volunteer Opportunities

Applications have now closed for the volunteer positions that were advertised in February 2018. We will have new positions listed here in late March / early April 2018.

At this stage we do not have the capacity to manage general expressions of interest and only accept applications for the roles advertised on this website. If you are interested in any other roles or are unsure which role to apply for, please continue to monitor this website for new opportunities or attend an Information Evening.

ASRC Information Evening

Come along to an ASRC Information Evening to learn about all the different ways you can engage with us; volunteering, campaigning, advocating, donating, fundraising and much more. You will have the opportunity to speak directly with staff and how you can get involved.

Date: Our next Information Evening will be held in May, 2018 – keep an eye on this page for details.

ASRC Corporate Volunteering

ASRC Corporate Volunteering offers businesses and other organisations a unique opportunity for their staff to contribute to supporting and empowering people seeking asylum in our community.

Based at our Footscray Centre, the Corporate Volunteering program provides opportunities for participants to assist staff and volunteers in the Foodbank and the Community Kitchen. Throughout the day participants witness firsthand the scope and scale of the work of the ASRC and leave with the positive knowledge that their contribution has had a positive impact for people seeking asylum.

Feedback from past participants has been positive with many organisations and individuals returning to volunteer with us on a number of occasions.

To organise your volunteering day with us first download our Corporate Volunteering Info Pack.

If after reading the Info Pack you would like to organise a date for your corporate volunteering, or if you have further questions, please email with the subject line “Corporate Volunteering Inquiry: [Your Name]”.


Student Placements and Practical Legal Training 

The ASRC takes students from a variety of courses and institutions including universities and TAFE however there are a limited number of placements and we employ a rigorous selection process. Opportunities for student placements will be advertised here when available.
