Volunteer

Mother’s Day Classic events are powered by volunteers.

Since 1998, thousands of people across Australia have contributed valuable skills, time, and energy in a range of capacities to help bring events to life. There are many reasons and motivations behind why people volunteer, and no matter how much time you have available, or the type of skills and experience you have or don’t have, you can volunteer.

Why volunteer?

Volunteering is one of the most rewarding things you can do. You can meet like-minded people, learn new skills, challenge yourself, gain confidence and have fun whilst doing good.

Who can volunteer?

Anyone can volunteer, no matter your age, identity, talents, abilities or skills. If you like meeting people, have a positive attitude and a willingness to help, you can volunteer!

How to volunteer?

Join the team on Mother's Day at one of up to 70 events across Australia, or make a unique contribution by joining an organising committee that works year-round.

Make a unique contribution. Join a volunteer-run organising committee.

Join an amazing team of people who are passionate about delivering fun and inspirational events that celebrate those touched by breast and ovarian cancer and raise funds for life-changing research. Working alongside our best-in-class, innovative event management organisations, committees engage with local communities to recruit plenty of on-the-day volunteers, boost event participation and create a memorable and fun experience.

The role of a volunteer committee member is an important yet rewarding one.

  • Learn valuable job and leadership skills
  • Expand your professional networks
  • Raise your profiles within your own organisation and profession
  • Strengthen ties to your local community
  • Make an impact

Your experience as a committee member:

  • Members meet regularly from October until event day, for approximately 1 hour. Meeting dates are set well in advance, and attendance can by in-person and/or online.
  • Members willingly participate and provide input to meetings, bringing their ideas and experiences to the group to help grow their event and ensure it’s enjoyable for the community.
  • Members are required to work between meetings on small, achievable, and realistic tasks that help meet the above objectives, meaning ideal time commitment is somewhere between 5 and 10 hours per month.
