Many ways to volunteer
EWB Australia was founded in 2003 on the idea that engineering, along with complementary skill sets and aligned organisations, can lift people out of poverty. One of the best ways to contribute to making this vision a reality is to work with us, participate in one of our programs, or volunteer. There are many opportunities to give your time, in ways that align with your skills, interests and experience.
Join a local chapter to participate and explore volunteering opportunities close to you.
Become an Australian volunteer field professional on a 9-20 month assignment.
Gain work experience, learn new skills and support our programs, based at our HQ.
