Volunteer Opportunities

Gear Up Girl 2016

Sydney Olympic Park to Cronulla

Sunday 13th March 2016Screen Shot 2016-02-22 at 3.56.16 pm

This is a great chance to start volunteering in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere for first timers and of course, a fantastic day for returning volunteers too!

After their shift, all volunteers are invited at the finish line in Cronulla for a celebration of a great day of volunteering!


How does the day work?

The route is divided into sectors and sites. Each area is looked after by a wonderful Team Leader. You will meet your team at an easily accessible meeting point (such as a train station) and your team leader will brief you, give you your volunteer bag and meal pack and then allocate you to your position and be your point of contact throughout the shift looking after you. We promise this will be a great day as part of a wonderful team!
