We couldn’t do it without you

At Courage to Care, our volunteers are our lifeblood. With a passion for creating an inclusive society, our volunteers are the driving force behind our ability to action real change. We simply couldn’t do it without them.

Our volunteers have delivered Upstander Programs to more than 142,000 participants. Working with students and the wider community, they empower others to stand up and take positive action. It’s with their unwavering commitment that we can transform bystander behaviour into Upstander action.

How you can help us achieve our mission

Are you a passionate advocate for social inclusion within your community? Do you believe that we all have the power to inspire positive change? If so, we’d love you to join us.

You’ll be an integral part of the team

As a volunteer with Courage to Care, you will take on an important and special role.

You’ll find it incredibly rewarding to deliver the Upstander message directly to participants. You’ll help keep alive the memory of the Holocaust, the acts of the Righteous Among the Nations, and various unnamed others – all of whom stood up for their fellow man. And you’ll know you’re making a real difference in the community.

There’s something for everyone

Just as diverse as our volunteers themselves, we have a range of volunteer opportunities available:

  • Upstander Program delivery: You’ll get the chance to visit a range of schools in QLD, working directly with participants to educate and promote Upstander action in our communities.
  • Fundraising, marketing and events: You’ll help build our profile and raise funds so we can continue delivering Upstander Programs and extend our reach.
  • Projects and workgroups: You’ll contribute your skills and expert knowledge to the ongoing development and expansion of our Upstander programs, or help other volunteers broaden and deepen their skills.
  • Governance: You’ll share your skills to ensure we have sound financial and legal governance.

You will receive training upfront, along with extensive ongoing guidance and professional development throughout your volunteering journey.

Have you got what it takes?

We welcome volunteers above 18 years of age from all backgrounds, ethnicities and religious beliefs.

Detailed knowledge of the Holocaust and other genocides is not a pre-requisite. All that’s required is a strong desire to create real change – and a commitment to educate and inspire Australians in schools and workplaces to be Upstanders in their communities.

Ideally, you’ll be a natural, flexible communicator. And while not required, experience in education, social work or community awareness is always welcome.

If you’re ready for a rich and rewarding experience, register your interest and a member of our team will be in touch.
