Amnesty International Australia is an organisation founded on volunteers. Without these passionate, dedicated individuals, we would be unable to achieve human rights impact across Australia and around the globe. We would cease to exist.

And you too can help us make a big impact. Whether you have a spare day a week or one day a year, you can defend human rights. Volunteer work is available Australia-wide in many areas:

  • coordinating events and planning campaign work
  • campaigning in the community
  • participating in activist consultations
  • general office administration
  • reception

Please note:

Amnesty Australia is currently undergoing some internal changes to ensure we give our volunteers the best possible experience. This means there will be a delay in processing your enquiry to ensure we find the right fit for you within our organisation. 

We are excited about our new programs and confident we will have a volunteering opportunity to suit you. We encourage you to keep an eye on the volunteer page for opportunities/vacancies as they come up.
