Volunteering Ventures

Volunteering Ventures are one off volunteering opportunities in a range of areas, from health to young people to the environment. Every Venture allows you to volunteer alongside a friend, meet other Murdoch students and accomplish something meaningful, all without the commitment normally required from volunteering.

If you would like to try something new in a friendly environment, while also helping out a worthy cause, this is something for you!
