Get involved as a volunteer!
Our supporters and volunteers are at the heart of our organisation. There is a role for everyone, and we'd love to hear from you. Just fill out the form on the right to let us know you can volunteer. You can also check out our Volunteer Toolkit for useful guides and resources to help you get started.
Ways to get involved
One of the most important things you can do as a volunteer is help to build the Solar Citizens movement - this national network of solar owners, solar supporters and local solar action groups all joining together to protect and grow solar in Australia. Here are some ways to do this:
Be a Solar Spark - Willing to come along to one-off volunteer activities, but no time for more? We often need volunteers for one-off events, or when the media want to interview a local person about their solar. Tick this box on the right, then stay tuned - we'll get in touch when a volunteer opportunity comes up in your area.
Be a Solar Champion - Can you do DIY activities in your area to support our campaigns, such as sign up new people, meet with your MP, or organise small local events? By signing up more Solar Citizens, and implementing our campaigns in your community, you are building our power and impact to help us win. Tick this box on the right, and we'll help you get started.
Join or start a Solar Action Group - Joining a local Solar Action Group is an amazing way to get more active on solar issues and make a difference in your community. Or you can kickstart solar action in your community by starting your own Solar Action Group - tick this box on the right and we'll help you get started. You can also contact an existing group directly using the details below.
