The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) is both a place and a movement. They are an independent not-for-profit organisation, whose programs support and empower people seeking asylum to maximise their own physical, mental and social well being. As a movement, they mobilise and unite communities to create lasting social and policy change for people seeking asylum in Australia. They are proudly owned and run by our community of volunteers and supporters.
ASRC offers a large range of volunteer opportunities across their programs. Volunteer roles are diverse and each requires different sets of skills, experience and availability. A Volunteer Information Evening provides an opportunity to talk to Program Managers about the requirements for specific roles.
When you submit an application you can choose which of the available volunteer roles you wish to apply for based on your preference, availability and qualifications/skills. Successful candidates are chosen based upon careful comparison of the demands of the position with the abilities and skills of each candidate.
