The reach and impact of CMY's work is made possible by many fabulous individuals who generously contribute their time, energy and skills to support young people to build better lives in Australia. 

More than 800 volunteers are involved in a range of CMY programs including mentoring young job-seekers, providing guidance and sharing insights with newly-arrived young people on their settlement journey, or supporting young people in police custody.

Our volunteers are at the heart of what we do, and we cannot thank them enough for the passion and commitment they bring to supporting young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds. 

We are currently seeking volunteers for a number of programs. Please take a look through the following opportunities to see which one would be the most suitable for you.


The Centre for Multicultural Youth supports schools and other organisations to run Out-of-school-hours Learning Support Programs or Homework Clubs for students. If you want to volunteer with an OSHLSP, find out more about programs close to you.


PLEASE NOTE: you will be asked to complete a police check and a Working with Children Check when volunteering with a CMY program. This is considered a minimum standard for child safety in the sector. You are also likely to go through a recruitment process that includes interviews and reference checks.
