Our unique group of more than 350 volunteers, consists of former participants that wish to continue their skills development and guide the next group of youth through the program, assist with ship keeping, office duties or ship maintenance. The program cannot exist without the enthusiastic and dedicated support of our volunteers and we are proud to call them our own.

Over 50% of participants return to volunteer on either a 3 hour sail or week-long voyage.

“What really impressed me was the attitudes and character of the volunteer teenagers and young adults that were the volunteer sailors. They all had great people skills, were physically strong and healthy, and of good character forged from committing themselves to challenges that are bigger than themselves.” – Richard M, TripAdvisor

Volunteering is great for personal development and is also an opportunity to network and make new friends. Becoming part of the Leeuwin Volunteer team means you will work alongside people who can help change your life.
