How you can
Volunteer

All that we do at Fusion is made possible by ordinary people putting up their hand to be part of the story. A community of dedicated and passionate people can indeed change the world.

By volunteering with Fusion, you’ll be part of a movement of like-minded people, committed to see transformed communities where young people thrive.

Our volunteers can develop skills, build on their experience and knowledge and be at the heart of developing innovative responses to community needs.

Get in touch with us, if any of these opportunities sound like a good fit for you. If not, check back in again soon. There’s sure to be something right for you, just around the corner.

PLEASE NOTE All Volunteers must meet these ESSENTIAL Criteria: Working with Children’s Check, National Police Check and full COVID-19 Vaccination.

Fusion runs various support groups for young people that emphasise personal growth and identity formation, engagement with new ideas and recreational opportunities, and connection to peers and caring adults.

We currently have male and female groups running in Frankston North and Mornington respectively.

Casual
cleaner

This is no ordinary housekeeping job. Preparing a room for a young person takes love and care. Could you offer this care to the young people in our community?

Duties Include:

  • Remaking bed
  • Basic washing
  • Dusting
  • Vacuuming
  • Completing check list of room contents and reporting lost, missing and broken items.

It’s a simple role, but the impact of a clean, welcoming, ready-to-sleep in room on a young person when they first arrive can be life-changing.

Don’t underestimate the contribution you would be making by applying for this volunteer role.

Training will be provided.

Weekly cleaner
Youth Housing Service

This is not an ordinary cleaning job. The role is designed to complement the ongoing work of our residents and lead tenants.

Duties may Include:

  • Clean kitchen – benchtops, cooktop, oven, floors
  • Clean-out fridge
  • Vacuum and mop all communal spaces
  • Clean 3 bathrooms

This role helps maintain a large house. While residents are learning life skills and doing a great job, having someone go over the house once a week makes a huge difference.

We’re looking for someone who takes pride in their work and will enjoy contributing to our community. Don’t underestimate the impact you will have in applying for this role.

All training will be provided.
