Volunteering work can happen in variety of ways and Prof Lucas Walsh suggested that this can take place invisibly like ‘engaging in online activities and contribution to updating Wikipedia’. Some volunteers do not report their activities as they consider these as pursuing their personal interest.  Volunteering Australia CEO, Adrienne Picone, had the following suggestions on where to start:

  1. Think about what you’d like to give – and gain – from your volunteering
  2. Work out how much time you can dedicate to volunteering
  3. If your work or lifestyle requires you to travel frequently, that doesn’t preclude you from giving back
  4. Check out the opportunities on GoVolunteer.com.au
