Volunteer with us


Advance Diversity Services (ADS) has a great team of volunteers who offer their time and expertise to make a positive difference to the people we serve and to Australian society.

When you volunteer, we also provide you with the support and training to make your experience as worthwhile and rewarding as possible.

Volunteering can help you

  • gain valuable work experience
  • develop skills and self-confidence
  • make new friends
  • share your skills with others
  • complete your study
  • contribute to community
  • Give you a sense of purpose
  • Feel good about yourself

Give your best

Some volunteer roles we offer are outlined here – but you should also follow ADS on Facebook and LinkedIn for more opportunities.


Administrative support – assisting with the day-to-day running of our busy office and programs through duties like reception and answering telephones, distributing information, and entering data. Form filling – helping clients to complete government forms (e.g. Centrelink and NSW Housing) and with letters. This can be vital in helping people to settle, apply for work and to get family assistance.
Language support – providing English-language support for migrant and refugee students aged 12 to 18 who attend Beverly Hills Intensive English Centre (IEC). The IEC / ADS partnership equips students with a level of English that means they can function effectively in mainstream high school or TAFE courses. Lifelong Learning – assisting ADS to provide affordable and accessible education activities that support and benefit our clients and residents of the St George and Sutherland area. Priority is given to programs that promote the arts, literacy, information exchange, skills development and cross-cultural dialogue and connections.

‘Volunteering with ADS gives you a great place to share your skills, gain new experiences and find fulfilment in helping others.’
