A U S T R A L I A

National Service Australia is an initiative that works to help young Australians serve their community & country.

Our vision is of an Australia where we continually grow as people together, acknowledging our past, and expressing gratitude to our country and community through significant volunteer service. 

NSA's mission is to help young people in Australia value and improve the nation through meaningful and focused volunteering in their local community

WHY SERVE?

Australia is an incredible country with a

rich and complex history.

The Australian story is still being written,

featuring tales of caring for country,

mateship and helping others.

While Australians are lucky to live here,

we face many challenges too. Low literacy, a declining sense of connection, a harsh environment, and an aging population. 

Many great organisations are already

working to address these challenges, but

often need a hand to get things done. 

Participating in National Service allows you

to do just that, giving time and energy

to serve your community and country.

OUR SERVICE
VOLUNTEERS

National Service Australia recruits Service Volunteers aged 18-26 who are willing to commit to a year of service in a local community.

Service Volunteers work in pairs or a team for 20 hours per week, participating in one of four service divisions: education, community, seniors and environment.

Training, management, career coaching, and a  $15,000 support payment are provided to Service Volunteers during the year. 

Service Volunteers also commit to learning more about Australia, its land and history, including the culture and language of the First Nations country they serve on.
