Keen to lend a hand, a pen, or an hour? We’ve got just the thing for you.

Volunteering with Arc is a great way to make friends, meet new people and have a lasting impact on your local (or global) community. Need more than the guarantee of good karma to get you over the line? Volunteering can help you ramp up your resume, gain a competitive edge and as an added bonus all approved Arc programs are recognised on your Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).


Join to volunteer!

1. Join Arc:  Make sure to pick up your Arc sticker and goodie bag at Arc Reception. 

2. Find a program : Our 30+ volunteering programs have something for everyone, whether you're looking to ramp up your resume or change your community. Check out the programs below and find which one suits you (and your timetable) best!

3. Apply: Once you’ve signed up, apply to get involved! Most programs have an intake at the start of each term, and each program will need you to volunteer for a different amount of time weekly. FLEXI programs let you choose how much to volunteer, LIGHT programs take up 1-2 hours a week, MODERATE programs take up to 3 hours a week and our IMMERSIVE programs might take you overseas, to a rural community or working on campus for a week (or more).
