We understand that recruiting, managing and celebrating volunteers is best done with support and resources. That’s why Volunteering Queensland offers membership for all volunteer-involving organisations, managers and individuals, as well as corporate companies and affiliates to ensure the sector training, resources, recruitment and management practices in place to fast-track their success.
