FAQS - Volunteering

  • Can I work as a volunteer in at the Lasallian Foundation office in Australia?

Volunteering is a great way to get involved with us and you'll be playing a vital role in helping us to make positive changes in children's lives. If you would like to assist with events, IT, marketing or other local activities within Australia, contact us by email or phone (03) 9508 2700.

  • What skills or experience do I need to volunteer?

Our volunteers come from a diverse range of backgrounds and ages with a broad range of skills and experiences. Everyone from students, professionals, trades to the retired, we encourage people of all ages to volunteer.

  • Does Lasallian Foundation send Australian volunteers overseas?

Our focus is organising formal volunteering through the Lasallian schools network to strengthen our long term relationships. Presently we do not organise other volunteer visits overseas. Please also note that it takes some time to organise overseas volunteer opportunities - we require at least 6 months.

If you are a young person/s who is interested in volunteering for Lasallian projects, please contact Lasallian Youth Ministry about their Share the Mission program.

If you are a teacher, there may be opportunities to volunteer at Lasallian schools overseas working with both teachers and students. Please email for more information.

If you are a general volunteer, we would recommend contacting Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development or Australian Volunteers International for volunteering opportunities.



  • Internships

Since 2009, the Lasallian Foundation has also had a number of local and international students interns who have contributed greatly to our research and policy development helping us finish those jobs we haven’t had time to do. Thanks for all your hard work, enthusiasm and passion!

  • Does the Lasallian Foundation Australia still accept interns?

Yes we accept interns, however we have a very limited capacity. We prefer interns studying international studies, community development, or aid and development related degrees. All internship positions are arranged and appointed on a case by case basis. If you are interested to apply please email your CV to
