Why Volunteer?

The rise in childhood disease signals a need for preventative healthcare.

Mindd Foundation helps practitioners and patients discover and implement effective treatments. The Mindd Foundation trains practitioners at the annual Mindd International Forum that provides clinic-focused, evidence-based training in Nutritional & Environmental Medicine and Integrative Healthcare and preparing clinicians in the field, with knowledge on how to treat complex chronic illness and a broad variety of Pediatric conditions.

We educate the public via cutting-edge resources and research, through community projects and events.

By volunteering at Mindd and supporting our foundation, you have a hand in helping children and women struggling with chronic health, gain access to vital products and services.

How Can You Volunteer?

  • Event Support – Offering support to the events and marketing team in the lead up to events. The lead up to the Mindd International Forum is a crucial time when we require ‘all hands on deck’. Duties vary from packing delegate bags, creating posters to answering the phone.
  • Ongoing Admin Support – Duties include general office duties such as answering the phone and responding to email enquiries, updating the database, searching for current research and assisting with social media.

Admin experience is highly regarded however we can provide training, as long as you have the motivation and eagerness to be involved with our organisation as we strive to empower families and the lives of children and families across Australia.

If you are able to commit to a minimum of 1 day per week in the months leading up to the forum, as a thank you we will gift you with a FREE pass to the forum.

Who Can Volunteer?

If you have any skills that would be of benefit to our small, not for profit agency, we would love to hear from you. A health industry background and/or passion for Nutrition and Integrative Healthcare is highly desirable.
