Volunteering at Girls on Fire HQ
Add your rad to Girls on Fire
We’re on a mission to get the whole of Australia to get involved in the art of firefighting and disaster management. But we know not everyone wants to do it in a sassy firefighter suit.
Coming together as a community to keep each other safe, exercise resilience and problem-solve is what it takes to make a splash at Girls on Fire.
And that takes a diversity of skills (along with a diversity of people) to make that happen!
(Psst –current frontline emergency workers should check out the volunteer opportunities on our facilitator page!).

- Location scouts and relationship managers
- Sensitivity readers for our curriculum
- Video and photography
- Graphic design
- PowerPoint and similar creation
We will occasionally post other roles, so bookmark this page and stay posted via our newsletter.
What do you receive?
Girls on Fire is all about developing skills and making connections. As a registered not-for-profit association, we run our programs in line with
the guidelines set down by Volunteering Australia.
This means we have a minimum expectation of commitment outlined with each role. And each role in return has an agreed standard of recognition and benefit for the volunteer.
- A minimum term of three months as a volunteer
- Attending our online orientation and training
- An agreed set of tasks, hours or attendance on a monthly basis
- Exercising our core values of respect, teamwork, safety and inclusion at all times
- A current Working with Children check prior to commencing your volunteer role
Our commitment to you:
All Girls on Fire volunteers receive acknowledgement of their contribution to our programs. This includes:
- A certificate of recognition
- A written reference that reflects your input, output and character
- Free training in relevant areas
- Connection to our expanding Community of Practice
Volunteers are encouraged to be proactive in seeking new opportunities within the Girls in Fire organisation. As we are in the early stages of our growth, we anticipate new roles will be a part of this growth strategy. As a valued volunteer, you’ll be exposed to opportunities to participate in training and other special projects as they arise.
