Volunteer at VicSRC Congress!

Applications NOW OPEN! Closed!!

To make Congress a reality we need the help of a large team of volunteers, including you! Apply online by 9pm, Wednesday 9th May 2018. 

VicSRC Congress is a three-day explosion of student voice.

Run by students, for students and attended by the Minister for Education, VicSRC Congress brings students together from all across Victoria to create solutions and take action on the issues that really matter to their education.

Delegates shape Congress in real time, taking control of the conversation incorporating a choose-your-own-adventure format. Their passions drive their voice and choice as students work together to set the agenda for education change.

Congress can't happen without our amazing crew volunteers!  This is a great opportunity for those interested in gaining tangible experience in education, facilitation, event management, back-of-house, AV, event logistics, working with young people and leading activities.

VicSRC will cover the costs of accommodation, food and transportation to and from the venue. You will be given a Congress t-shirt, show bag and be provided all materials to support you in the role. You’ll also receive a gift voucher to say thank you for supporting VicSRC and Congress! And you'll come away with unforgettable experiences.
