The JNC acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands on which we work, the Gadigal and Bidjigal People of the Eora Nation. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge that these lands always were and always will be Aboriginal lands. We celebrate First Nations Peoples’ connection to the land and recognise the importance of Indigenous voices and culture. We would like to advise that there may be images or videos on this website of people who have since passed.

Volunteer in your community

Why is this a good time to volunteer in your community?

It’s a new year, and a good time to do something new. You may already have made a New Year’s resolution to make a difference this year; with the JNC, you can have an immediate impact locally. We’re seeking volunteers in the Randwick and Waverley local government areas, the inner city and Glebe.

Working together

Together with our volunteers, the JNC runs services and programs to connect people with others in the community and strengthen their skills and independence.

“Volunteers make an extraordinary contribution to Australian society. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our community and come from all walks of life: working people, students and professionals, young people and retirees, from every town and community.”
