Corporate volunteering

Your organisation can partner with us in a number of ways to support your corporate social responsibility programs while helping us achieve our goal of an Australia free of poverty.

How your workplace can get involved

Corporate volunteering encourages employees and organisations to pitch in and have fun while developing skills and participate in team building.

There are a number of ways you can become involved:

Skilled volunteering or pro bono services

We regularly receive pro bono assistance in areas such as IT, law, accounting, finance, marketing and event management. View our list of current vacancies »

Product donation or in-kind support

Some partners offer in-kind support such as the provision of a venue and catering for events, advertising space, product donations and materials for programs.

Brotherhood Community Stores

With 20 op shops across Melbourne, we welcome assistance from corporate volunteers to help with projects such as small renovations, painting, merchandise displays and more. 

Brotherhood Books

Volunteer with our online store that sells second-hand books, where all funds raised go towards our programs and services.

Sorting facility

Volunteers are vital for keeping our social enterprise warehouse in Sunshine operating, and we are always in need of regular support to help sort through donations to unearth treasures to sell in our stores.

Special events

Some of our special, one-off events and projects include packing stationery kits for school children each November, serving dinner to our seniors, and community festival participation.


Many corporate volunteers have continued on with us. We have more than 1200 volunteers who regularly dedicate their time to support our work. View our current vacancies »
