John Curtin Weekend

With over 500 volunteers traveling to more than 40 participating regional towns and metropolitan sites to work on a range of initiatives, the experience offered by John Curtin Weekend (JCW) is unique.

Our metropolitan sites are all one day projects and generally cost $20 per person. Our regional sites which include an overnight stay, and great hospitality provided by local residents, cost $60 per person. Transport, catering, t-shirt, cap, water bottle and accommodation when needed are provided.

To allow local communities to plan and fund their projects, three quarters of the quota of volunteers is made up of groups/clubs. These sites have already been reserved and group/club registration day is in July. Any places not taken up by the groups/clubs will be released to individuals in August.
