Current volunteer opportunities

Richmond v Collingwood Game Saturday 28th July

The Foundation’s Community Partner, Richmond FC
have dedicated this match to raising funds and awareness for the Foundation. We require volunteers to tin rattle on the concourse of the MCG and at the Swan St and Punt Road Intersection from 12:00pm – 3:30pm (or part thereof if you are not available for the whole shift - please advise).

This is a great opportunity if you have always wanted to volunteer but don't have time to commit to something ongoing. This is an easy, ad-hoc role which you can do with a friend or family member. Plus you will be helping make huge difference to the lives of children that have been impacted by violence.

All volunteers will receive 1 x GA ticket to the watch the rest of the game after their shift.

If interested please email
events@amf.org.au with the following info:
• Full Name
• Contact Number
• Emergency Contact’s Name and number

We will contact you closer to the date with all details & relevant information.

Our policy on youth volunteers is as follows: Volunteers aged 12 – 16 years old can volunteer as long as they have an adult (over 18 years of age) that can also volunteer in close proximity. Volunteers under 12 years old will be accepted as long as they are accompanied by a parent, guardian or other adult at all times.
