Volunteering at Lighthouse

Lighthouse volunteers play an integral role in our Therapeutic Family Model of CareTM. Each volunteer is an example of our communities commitment to support homeless young people.

Volunteers support our program in a variety of ways – helping to upkeep our residential homes, fundraising and assisting at events, completing various tasks at our Youth Resource and Administration Centre and supporting our carers and young people through our Community Committees.

Community committees

If you’re ready to step up and make a regular, ongoing commitment to ending youth homelessness, then a Community Committee might be right for you.

Check out our Community Committee’s page to find out more information.

Corporate volunteering opportunities

There are exclusive opportunities to volunteer at one of our Lighthouse homes across Melbourne or in our Youth Resource and Administration Center in Richmond alongside our carers and young people.

Opportunities are limited to corporate partners and longterm friends of the Foundation.
