Volunteering Geelong also provides a referral service for volunteers looking for volunteer roles and organisations looking for volunteers.
Volunteering Geelong has relocated to the St Mary's Terrace Community Hub (192 Myers St). The Hub was recently developed by Common Equity Housing Limited. Volunteering Geelong manages the space located in central Geelong. It provides community organisations, commercial businesses and individuals with meeting, training and event spaces for hire at a low cost. Check out our brochure for more information.
There are spaces for workshops, seminars, talks and meetings accommodating up to 50 people. There is also a consultation room for private meetings, interviews or one on one catch ups.
Volunteering Geelong is governed by a Board of Governance with members representing community and corporate organisations and community volunteers.
