Volunteer Campaigns

We always need more volunteers.

Volunteer recruitment campaigns like our current STRIVE and # VolunteerForDisability projects help us spread the word.

As well as these special campaigns, our ongoing Volunteer Roadshow takes the volunteering message to local schools. If you would like one of our volunteer coordinators to come to your school to talk to students, please contact us.

We are currently running some special volunteer recruitment campaigns:


The Student Recreation Interstate Volunteer Exchange (STRIVE) is an innovative opportunity for students and young people between the ages of 14 and 21 years to have a summer camp-style volunteering experience away from home, without the need and expense of travelling overseas. Volunteers will travel to Melbourne during the school holiday period to volunteer on mid-week camps, supporting children aged between 5 and 18 years and helping them get the most out of the camp experience.

During weekends and/or between camps, volunteers will be hosted by a selected family that is well-known to IOE, such as a staff, volunteer or client family, who matches the interests and personality of the volunteer – we want to make sure the fit is right so that you can have the best possible experience during your down time!


Volunteering is for everyone is the message of the # VolunteerForDisability national campaign.

Coordinated by Interchange Incorporated www.interchange.org.au  on behalf of its 12 member agencies and funded through NDIS, the campaign’s aim is to highlight the value of volunteers; to raise community awareness of Interchange; to encourage and support people, including those with a disability, to volunteer and to ensure under NDIS we all continue to support a national culture of volunteering into the future.

Volunteering is a life changing experience.
