Volunteering with Nutrition Australia

Why become a volunteer?

Nutrition Australia provides all volunteers with real, hands on experience in community nutrition. Working with Nutrition Australia will give you the opportunity to expand your skills in a wide range of areas and will give you valuable insight into the operation of a non-government, non-profit community health education organisation. Many of our volunteers have used the experience and skills they gained working with Nutrition Australia to gain employment with other organisations or to gain entry into further studies (eg Masters degrees). There are many opportunities to expand your nutrition knowledge through exposure to our resources and through free attendance at seminars and events you may be assisting us with.

Who should volunteer?

Just about anyone! Experience at Nutrition Australia is ideal for anyone who is keen to develop skills in promoting health, including students studying science, nutrition, health promotion, human movement studies, education and many other courses. Or if you have other skills, in business, communications, design, etc, we'd love to hear from you.

Contact your local Nutrition Australia office to find out which volunteer opportunities are best suited to your needs.
