Volunteer at Starlight

At Starlight, we provide laughter and support to seriously ill children and their families throughout Australia - and we simply couldn't do it without our generous-hearted volunteers. Since 1988 we’ve had thousands of volunteers help put smiles on children’s faces.

Starlight is committed to ensuring we provide a positive experience for all our wonderful volunteers. In order for us to do this we look for passionate, skilled and committed people and match them to specific volunteering opportunities.

Due to the nature of the work that Starlight carries out, our volunteer opportunities do not cater for one-off volunteer days, with the exception of Starlight Day. However you may want to consider having a fundraiser at work or with your friends to help us continue delivering our programs to the children and their families.

The Volunteer Recruitment Process:

For us to match volunteers to specific opportunities we need to complete a recruitment process. This helps us learn more about you, your current skills and experience, why you want to volunteer with Starlight, and to make sure we let you know what’s required of you as a volunteer.

We will also have to complete police and working with children checks. This process can take from 4-8 weeks once your application has been received.

 

If we are not able to match you to a volunteering opportunity when you apply  we will keep your details on file and contact you when a suitable opportunity becomes available. 

 

The Volunteer Application Process:

Please make sure you have the following items ready before you commence the application process.  This is because the application page will time out if all the questions are not answered within 30 minutes. 

  • Your resume to attach to your application
  • Clear and recent passport-style photo to upload
  • Cover letter detailing why you are a great candidate

As a Starlight volunteer you’ll have access to specific training to ensure you are equipped with all the tools and experience to do your very best. From time to time you may be required to attend face to face training sessions or complete online training to build on your skills and knowledge.
