    Volunteer With Us

    From inspiring students to start their first digital social enterprise, to equipping them to create a social impact product with $20 seed funding and tackle climate change as a sustainability consultant for their school – we run a wide range of programs for young people and educators across Australia, and you're invited to be a part of them. 

    We look for experts across a wide range of areas and skills, including (but definitely not limited to) sustainability, technology, social enterprise, marketing, impact measurement, fundraising, advocacy, and international development. There are both youth-facing opportunities, and internal volunteering roles to help us drive the systems change required to scale Young Change Agents' impact.

    Why Volunteer with Young Change Agents?

    • Have a meaningful influence on the lives of young Australians. Open pathways to opportunities that young people may not have even thought possible, and inspire and motivate them to continue with their social enterprise or business ideas.
    • Become a part of a community of social impact and entrepreneurship leaders around the country. Over the years, hundreds of volunteers have worked with us to empower young people to develop the entrepreneurial mindset, skillset and toolset required to create change.
    • Make your impact exponential. We achieve our mission by supporting not only students, but educators too. Training just one educator with the skills to teach social entrepreneurship can influence hundreds of students at their school.

    Our volunteering roles?

    • Expert In Residence: meet as part of an advisory board once a quarter, and offer advice around a YCA program so that it can improve and scale
    • Youth Mentor: guide teams of students with their business ideas at a local school
    • School Coach: train and empower educators to teach their students about social entrepreneurship
    • Guest Speaker: share your industry experience and insights with students and/or educators, via live or asynchronous learning & development content
    • Pitch Judge: provide feedback and advice around students’ social enterprise ideas, at a pitch event near you
    • Team Supporter: contribute your skills directly toward amplifying our impact within schools and communities around Australia – e.g. mentoring our team members, or filling a gap in our operations
