Many ways to volunteer

EWB Australia was founded in 2003 on the idea that engineering, along with complementary skill sets and aligned organisations, can lift people out of poverty. One of the best ways to contribute to making this vision a reality is to work with us, participate in one of our programs, or volunteer. There are many opportunities to give your time, in ways that align with your skills, interests and experience.

Code of Conduct

To ensure that everyone has an enjoyable and enriching experience, EWB Volunteers are expected to bring a spirit of respect and integrity to their engagement with EWB. Our Volunteer Code of Conduct guides our Volunteers as they contribute to EWB’s mission and vision.
