Work with us

Volunteer with us

CEF’s volunteers are the invaluable champions of what we do, what we believe in and how we connect with country youth – the future lifeblood of our rural and regional areas.

CEF’s 40-plus local foundations are all run by volunteer committees. Every year they decide which country students aged 16 – 25 receive grants to pursue their ambitions. They go into schools to encourage students to apply, fundraise in their local communities and offer immeasurable reach in mentoring and offering networks to country people from all walks of life.

Without volunteers, hundreds of country students every year would be left without people who believe in them and their dreams.

If you are interested in volunteering for our organisation, check out your local foundations here or alternatively, you can provide an expression of interest to start your own local foundation.
