When you volunteer at The Huddle, you contribute to the community and impact the lives of young people by helping them ‘Learn, Grow, and Belong’.

Whether your skills are in helping a young person with their homework, going over a resume, interview practice, or helping out with a sports and rec. program, you’ll get the opportunity to impact and form relationships with the young people in our community. 

In turn we hope that our volunteers grow professionally and personally.

Our award-winning programs operate across North Melbourne, Kensington, Flemington and Ascot Vale and are growing across Werribee, Point Cook and Tarneit.    

We offer a range of programs that welcome hardworking, passionate volunteers to assist in their delivery. These include school study support, leadership development, job readiness workshops, a large variety of sport and recreation programs and exciting school holiday activities.
