What Is Volunteering All About?

If you have a passion for working with young people and you want to be a part of an expanding volunteer family that helps Burn Bright work towards our vision. You want to help young people grow, enjoy their energy and vibrancy and have a heart to serve, then we want you to join us as a volunteer.

Volunteering with Burn Bright can take many shapes and we would love to explore a few of them with you. If you are interested in volunteering, just send us an email at volunteer@burnbright.org.au or give us a bell on (02) 8070 9217.

School Programs

Our volunteers support us by assisting our facilitators during school programs in running activities, helping with tasks throughout the day and getting to know the young people we are working with.

Throughout a program, you will get to experience the vibrancy that Burn Bright brings and capture the energy that young people bring in to what is often a dynamo combination. As you get more comfortable, we would be excited for you to help us facilitate and share stories with the young people we work with. Your impact is beyond our words!

Camps

Volunteer at Burn Brights Annual National Leadership Camp as a Junior or Adult Mentor! Mentors are responsible for leading a small group of young people over 4 fun filled intense days. Our mentor team is made up of a diversity of people who come from all walks of life.

In The Office

Camps or School Programs may not be your cup of tea and we totally understand that! We are always looking for some help around the office, helping to prepare resources, planning for our next big event and a host of other bits and pieces. If you would love to spend some of your precious time supporting our team, we would love that! There is definitely a task that will be suited to your skills and passions.

Why We Love Our Volunteers

We love our volunteers because they are such a vital part of our organisation. Our vision is to bring people together to form communities that empower young hearts. To be able to see that vision come to life, we continue to seek out new volunteers who are passionate to become a part of the community.

Our volunteers bring a heart to serve. To serve young people, each other and their local communities. This willingness to serve inspires us and the young people we work with. Our volunteers embody the values we build with young people.

Our volunteers bring an amazing passion and enthusiasm to all parts of our organisation. Whether they are out on programs, in the office or just lending a hand in what ever way they can.

The great thing about volunteering with us is that there are many different ways you can give your time to support our organisation and every single way contributes to the work we get to carry out on a daily basis.

Our Supporters

Make everything we do possible.

For-Purpose… Still Not-For-Profit

We pride ourselves on being a not-for-profit organisation. This means that we don’t generate profit for the benefit of our directors or members but we generate revenue for the benefit of our organisation and the young people we serve. Financially, our goal is to always be able to fund our core business ourselves without relying on financial support. This being the case to support the growth of the organisation, support our volunteers and allow us to explore new horizons, your support in what ever way possible is very much needed and appreciated.

To find out how you or your organisation might best be able to support us, please see below.

Financial Support

As a new organisation and as we continue to make new ground, we would love your support to help our organisation grow in our early years. This support will help us to roll out programs into new schools and start to develop products and continue running our National Leadership Camp. Ultimately, your support now will set us up to be financially viable.

Our goal is to always be able to fund our core business ourselves without relying on financial support. We see this as being fundamental to create a successful business into the future. Whilst this is the case, we will still use your financial support to help the growth of the organisation, support our volunteers and continue to serve young people in new ways throughout Australia. Your support in whatever way possible is very much needed and appreciated.

Whilst Burn Bright does not hold a Tax Deductible status, any financial contribution is put hard to work.
If you are considering giving to our organisation, please email us at andy@burnbright.org.au or you can donate online and anonymously through www.givenow.com.au/burnbrightaustralia.

Thank you for your support

Donation of Equipment and Resources. Supporting us with technological resources, office supplies or any other equipment that might aid our organisation would help us to grow and continue to support young people across Australia.

Our Two Year Facilitator Program

We are currently developing a two year facilitator program, there is more information to come!

Our aim is to grow a facilitation team who are a part of a 2-year program in which they will learn to work in community and to serve others. The team will work towards our vision which rolls out into schools and with young people around Australia. The facilitators will undergo a training program which will equip them with the skills to facilitate and connect with young people as well as a focus on supporting others.

New facilitators would be hired in a staged format throughout the year. This will allow for a constant stream of new people in the organisation and ensure we are maintaining the quality of our facilitation. At the conclusion of the two years, facilitators will be equipped and ready to follow their dreams in whatever capacity that may look like.

Current Opportunities

Currently there are no positions available. Please don’t hesitate to contact info@burnbright.org.au to let us know you are interested and we will let you know when a position become available.
