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.
Code of Conduct
To ensure that everyone has an enjoyable and enriching experience, EWB Volunteers are expected to bring a spirit of respect and integrity to their engagement with EWB. Our Volunteer Code of Conduct guides our Volunteers as they contribute to EWB’s mission and vision.
Pro bono Brand Strategist
EWB Australia’s “Beyond 2020” Strategy, to be launched in July 2020, is a new strategy that sets a refreshed direction for the organisation, and seeks to refocus the organisation, its activities, and its languaging. EWB Australia seeks to work alongside a pro bono strategic branding partner to assist in a refresh of EWB’s brand messaging, language and tagline, as well as the creative execution of the new strategy launch. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a project brief. Enquiries close Friday May 29, 2020.
