Youth helping with a replanting project

Impact Volunteer Program


Our volunteering programs aim to expose young people between the ages of 16-25 years to the variety of volunteer opportunities available in the City of Greater Dandenong and beyond.

Impact Volunteer allows young people to:

  • Gain introductory hands on volunteering experience in their community
  • Connect with volunteer opportunities that match your interests and passion.
  • Build teamwork and communication skills

Three hands on volunteer opportunities will be available in 2021:

  • Environment and Sustainability - Impact Volunteering is set to provide young people aged 16-25 years with a hands-on environment and sustainability volunteer experience.
  • Community Services - Impact Volunteering is set to provide young people aged 18-25 years with a hands-on volunteer experience with a local community service organisation.
  • Coming Soon - Impact Volunteering is set to provide young people aged 18-25 years living with a disability with a hands-on volunteer experience.
