Volunteer

Our volunteers come together from a range of different backgrounds to help us transform lives in our local community.

#MISSIONBUDDIES is City Mission's volunteer program operating in the North and North West of Tasmania. Established in 1854, City Mission is one of Tasmania's oldest charities and exists to provide assistance to those who have a physical, emotional, social or spiritual need.

Our #MISSIONBUDDIES come together from diverse backgrounds. Everyone can play an important role in helping transform the lives of people in need. Whether you are a retired senior manager, hairdresser, teacher, cleaner, retail or hospitality worker, busy mum, young professional or someone with extraordinary BBQ skills, there is a place for you with #MISSIONBUDDIES.

We understand life's busy, that's why we offer volunteer opportunities that can fit in with your lifestyle. You can volunteer on a regular basis such as weekly or monthly or you can choose to join us for special events and activities throughout the year. You can also check out our Virtual Volunteering opportunities if you're unable to travel to us or want to volunteer some time after hours. However, if travel distance is an issue for you, talk to us about available options.

As part of our team, you'll have access to training opportunities and we'll celebrate your achievements as part of our monthly volunteer recognition program.
