This innovative volunteering pathway mirrors Melbourne Royal's Corporate Volunteering Program, in that Community Groups volunteer together - but they are also given an opportunity to promote their cause. Community Groups receive access to a commercial stand, at no charge, on a day following their shift.
Community Group volunteering offers a meaningful teamwork experience in an exciting environment; groups may work together to take on staffing an entire area/gate for day.
These roles are made up of tasks that require little to no preparatory training, specialised skills or knowledge.
To be invited to participate as a Community Group Volunteering Program Partner, organisations must comply with the following definitions:
- Community-based, and focused on community service, support or celebration.
Note: Community Group promotional stands can be used to champion causes and events, but not solicit donations or sell items.
