FIRST AND FOREMOST...
WHAT IS GOODIE?
Goodie is an interactive community where like-minded do-gooders share meaningful volunteering opportunities with each other.
By simply joining the community here, you'll be connected with volunteering opportunities that actually matter to you.
Why does Goodie exist?
We believe that, if given the right tools and opportunities, Australians would do more good. Our mission is to see all of Australia volunteering, which is why Goodie harnesses the power of technology to break down the barriers to volunteering.
Who is Goodie for?
Everyone! Our mission is to enable all Australians to do more good. In particular, we are a volunteering platform led by young people, for young people. So if you’re a young person – particularly a student – looking for volunteering opportunities, then you’re right at home.
How did Goodie come about?
Goodie was conceived on Christmas Eve 2017 by young professionals who have all experienced how hard it is to donate your time! So they brought Goodie to life to make it easier to do good through volunteering.
Where does Goodie sit in the process?
To help us scale and make more of an impact, Goodie acts as an intermediary – meaning it does not employ volunteers, nor does it act as an agent for charities. Goodie simply connects young people with organisations that need them, according to a volunteer's passions, skills and availability – ie, Goodie creates matches made in heaven.
Where is Goodie based?
If you’ve read this far, you’ll probably be able to guess that we’re based in Australia! Specifically, our team is currently based in Melbourne and Sydney.
