Volunteer with the Brisbane Eisteddfod
Be a part of the energy - volunteer with the Brisbane Eisteddfod
Brisbane Eisteddfod, like all non-profit organisations, survives with the support of hard-working, dedicated volunteers. They are our rock! Our volunteers, staff, teachers and performers come together as a diverse and vibrant team to make amazing programs available for young people to participate in – and the general community, to enjoy.
We realise that many people are time poor with work, study, family commitments but a few hours of volunteering can not only make an enormous difference to our organisation but it is a great way to have fun and meet new people.
We involve volunteers in useful and meaningful activities that will contribute to the Brisbane Eisteddfod programs. Whether you can commit to regular support or help out once or twice a year, our hearts will sing and dance to have you on board
Interested in becoming a volunteer?
Download our Volunteer Application form. This is the easiest way to register your interest in working with the Brisbane Eisteddfod. A few easy steps:
- Fill out the application form and email the completed form with as much detail as you can and email your form to our Marketing Manager, Ellie at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Interview – we may conduct short interviews which will give you an opportunity to see if you like us. We will discuss how you would like to contribute and the time you have available to volunteer
- Information sessions - at certain times of the year it may be necessary to hold information sessions with prospective volunteers. This is a great way for new volunteers to meet each other and for you to decide whether volunteering with us is right for you and the Brisbane Eisteddfod’s goals and needs.
- A Blue Card application – this is a Working with Children Check and is an ongoing assessment of a person's eligibility to work or volunteer with children and involves a check of person's national criminal history (including all spent convictions, pending and non-conviction charges) and other disciplinary and police information. Once a blue card application is approved the applicant is issued with a positive notice and a blue card which allows them to work in any regulated child-related employment or conduct any regulated child-related business for 3 years while their police information continues to be monitored.
In line with the National Standards for Volunteer Involvement, the Brisbane Eisteddfod community ensure the rights of volunteers are protected and they are supported to carry out their roles and responsibilities.
