Volunteering with Nutrition Australia NSW Division

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.
