Want to support SWY 2019, visit some great places and meet some amazing new people?  This is your opportunity!

SWY Australia is currently seeking volunteers to support the SWY Port of Call activities in Darwin (8th & 9th Feb) and Brisbane (15th -17th Feb). We are looking for energetic youth and former SWY participants to help us welcome the Nippon Maru and the international participants to Australia.

A range of volunteer roles exist, including:

  • Preparation activities – e.g. making gift bags and information packs for participants

  • Welcoming participants, invited guests and the general public to events

  • Escorting participants between activities

  • Conducting city tours for participants during free time

  • Ensuring the smooth running of the Ports of Calls

All Port of Call volunteers will receive:

  • Online training prior to the event (compulsory)

  • A volunteer T-shirt identifying them as a SWY Australia volunteer

  • A certificate acknowledging their contribution to the Ports of Call

  • The opportunity to interact with SWY participants from all over the world

  • Experience working on a large-scale international event


Please note: all volunteers are responsible for their own transport to and accommodation during Ports of Call.  However, for interested volunteers, SWY Australia will seek host families to reduce accomodation costs.

International volunteers – please note: SWY Australia cannot provide advice on visa requirements. For more information, please contact the Australian Embassy or consulate in your country.


If you would like to volunteer with us, please fill out the registration form below.

If you have questions or would like more information - please email us at info@swyaus.org
