Join the Travellers Aid Community

At Travellers Aid Australia, our volunteers are an especially significant and much valued part of our family. With a current volunteer workforce of over 125 individuals, we are able to provide over 225,000 episodes of assistance each year.

We offer a wide variety of volunteering opportunities. You may like to contribute your time and skills in a practical way by assisting at one or more of our sites at Flinders Street, Southern Cross or Seymour Railway stations. Or perhaps you could lend a hand at our head office in Bourke Street, Melbourne in the marketing, administration, finance or other area of expertise. Whatever your preference, we would love to hear from you.

And while you contribute to the community, we provide you with excellent on-the-job training and the chance to be part of a close knit workforce. You’ll develop your skills and expertise and be supported in a warm and ever changing environment.
