Our Volunteer Coordination Service is aimed at providing impeccable assistance to Event Managers and Volunteer Coordinators within Melbourne. We have tapped into the pool of talented, motivated, enthusiastic and intelligent tertiary students in Melbourne and provide event coordinators access to all these incredible students in one easy step by contacting us.

Our database of volunteers studying in event management, public relations and entertainment operations are career-minded students who have a drive to expand their knowledge and gain experience in an industry they love - events.

We also offer a number of additional event services that include event photography, attendee data collection and custom event IPhone applications.

Big Opening Night Charity 2011

ft. Kate Miller-Heidke and Hungry Kids of Hungary & MTV

Well-known Brisbane artists Kate Miller-Heidke and Hungry Kids of Hungary performed at the St Kilda Sea Baths’ Openair Cinema on Sunday. The performers were there for the Big Opening Night Charity organised by ‘Tunes For Change’, a not-for-profit organisation that releases an album quarterly and donates all proceeds to a pre-selected charity.

A small pool of I Need Helpers volunteers were on hand to assist the ‘Tunes For Change’ team by collecting donations for the charitable organisation on the day. The event was sold-out and volunteers were able to see the strong involvement of sponsors MTV and Ben & Jerry’s as well as the venue coordinators on the night. I Need Helpers communicated with the Sydney organisation on the Friday before and were quickly able to organise a select few enthusiastic and friendly volunteers to support the deserving charity. The event management team appreciated the assistance and extra time they had thanks to our motivated volunteers and have already said they would love to use I Need Helpers at their future events.
