Emporium volunteers

Can you volunteer to help run the Emporium at our Belconnen Community Centre?

Belconnen Community Centre volunteers connect with community members to access and build their experience. They enable the running of events and activities at our Social Bean Café and Emporium.

If you want to help us help our community, or have a skill you want to share, please express your interest in being a volunteer in our Emporium!

Volunteers help in the day-to-day activities of the Community Centre, ensuring a welcoming environment for visitors, and supporting our initiatives and services.

As you volunteer, you might be involved in activities including, but not limited to:

  • welcoming visitors to the centre
  • helping visitors find information on available services, upcoming events and general inquiries
  • setting up and maintaining Emporium stalls
  • managing Emporium sales and displays
  • preparing for and closing down events
  • helping with event promotions, registrations and on-the-day logistics.

In return, we offer to help you engage in continuous learning opportunities to enhance your skills and knowledge.

To volunteer with us, you must:

  • hold a satisfactory Working with Vulnerable People registration and have this with you at all times
  • undertake a National Criminal History Clearance prior to commencing and every three years thereafter
  • advise us of any convictions that may affect your eligibility to work or performing the inherent requirements of the position
