Consider volunteering

Volunteering provides an opportunity to be involved in activities while meeting people and learning more about your area.

Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills and gain Australian work experience. It can build confidence, help you meet local people, and its fun!

Many people find paid employment after starting as a volunteer.
