What is volunteering

Volunteering is different things to different people. Many people have a desire to volunteer but are not sure what organisation is going to be ideal for them. Essentially, volunteering involves giving time and being passionate about making a difference. 

Whatever it means to you, volunteering should be fun, fulfilling and exciting.  

Volunteering through the Mad Cow Project

At the Mad Cow Project you choose how you contribute to local communities. That’s why we say through us not with us. We connect you to a community and facilitate volunteering opportunities that work for you and our local community partners. That’s how we’re different. 

The Mad Cow Project supports volunteers from all backgrounds and industries, education, life experience and leverages diversity of thought. You can volunteer in different capacities through us – it’s your journey – all supported by experienced Mad Cow Project team members that have been there before. 

Our programs and their benefits

Our programs are designed with access to mentors, facilitators, local knowledge and the resources a volunteer needs to discover how they can take their good intent and turn it into impact. Our desire at the Mad Cow Project is for volunteers to grow professionally and personally, while practicing and sharing skills that support local communities.

The Mad Cow Project caters to a variety of needs.

Our volunteer programs provide choice so that each individual has the space to exercise leadership, absorb different perspectives, share knowledge and grow their networks, all within a supported small group environment. Whether you are an individual looking to join a group, a team looking to come together around a shared purpose, or an organisation seeking new ways to develop staff competencies and make a difference, we offer something through a different way of volunteering.
