We connect YOUNG PEOPLE TO organisations & MOVEMENTS creating a more just world.
We are a collective of young people in Australia who want to make real change in our society.
Respond was founded out of the reality that thousands of young Australians want to help where they can, but don't know where to start.
We hold a database of current opportunities to get you involved in social justice. Whether you are looking to volunteer every week at a food van, lend your photography skills for one day or help for one week to launch a social media campaign, we will make sure your time, passion and skills are put where they will be most effective.
YOUR TIME, YOUR VOICE, YOUR SKILLS
Create an account and tell us your unique skills, passions, experiences and availability.
We will hand pick current opportunities that suit you and that will allow you to make the greatest impact.
choose where to help
Choose the right oppurtunity for you. Whether that's being on a food van roster or helping a social media activation.
Go make change! If this is your first time engaging in social justice work we can buddy you up with a mentor to make things easier for you.
OUR AREAS OF FOCUS
The climate crisis is unjust, because those that have done the least to cause the problem, feel the effects first and worst. You can help support movements and campaigns advocating for #climatejustice
REFUGEES & asylum seekers
Australia’s asylum policy punishes rather than protects people. The harsh policies cause terrible suffering to vulnerable people. You can help refugees and asylum seekers receive the help they need.
Throughout the world girls and women are continually discriminated against and put in danger. Our society is built on the structured discrimination of girls and women. You can help change this.
There exists a heartbreaking divide in health and life expectancy between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. Our society is built on racism and we must act to close the gap. You can help us do that.
Globally, millions of people face limited access to food, clean water and sanitation. This is also a reality in Australia with over 100,000 people facing homelessness and 3 million people below the poverty line. You can help us break these cycles of poverty.
