It's that time again!  Let's all get together and do some awesome stuff!

Last time we got together at Transit Lounge for a social gathering, this time we want to be social and start working on some cool projects.  So we're meeting at RMIT in Swanston St - we'll provide the pizza and we will work together to decide what needs to be done and who wants to help out with each area.


What if I have no idea how I can help as a volunteer?

That's fine!  We'll have heaps of options for you to think about on the night and something will probably suit you.  Even if you don't have a background or skill in a particular area, volunteering could be an opportunity for you learn more about something and meet cool, passionate people.


Sure, but what if I actually don't find something that I'm interested in doing to help?

That's entirely okay too.  Eat some pizza, meet some decent people and go home happy and obligation free!


How much time will volunteering with StartOut take?

That is really up to you and the team you get together with.  We want your volunteering experience to be amazing so we'll do what we can to make sure it works for you.  We would like it if you could make it to most of the monthly HangOut events but completely understand when you can't.  Some of our volunteer roles will involve a lot of time in bursts, others will be a small amount regularly.  Either way, we're happy to have people who have energy and passion involved however they can be.


Do I have to do anything to become a volunteer with StartOut?

Yes. To officially start in a volunteer role you will need to do a police check and have a working with children check.  Other than that, if we find a role you'd like to undertake we'll need you to fill out a sign up form, do a quick and informal interview and agree to be awesome but not a lot else!  We can start that process at the HangOut.


I'd like to be a mentor to someone.

Excellent - although we're not recruiting mentors just yet.  We need to get the StartOut Crew together to work on all the supporting things first.  Stay on the list, feel free to join us at HangOut events and maybe even help out some other way in the mean time.


I don't like pizza/I'm a vegan/I have allergies etc

That's okay. If you have any dietary requirements just let us know ASAP and we'll see what we can do.


Can I bring a friend, they might want to volunteer as well?

Yes, of course! Just get them to sign up on this page themselves and they're most welcome!


Will you come?
