Volunteer with Rovers

Volunteering as an ACON Rover is a fun way to give back to the LGBTQ+ community. When you become an ACON Rover you will learn some great skills in harm reduction and it's a great way to make new social connections.  

Applications for new Rovers are now closed but keep an eye out during Mardi Gras and New Year's Eve when we tend to recruit again! 

All new applicants are provided with training and will join an existing network of experienced and passionate Rovers. During Mardi Gras and other events you will work in teams of two to:  

  • Provide harm reduction information and advice to patrons about alcohol and other drugs.  
  • Hand out free ACON fans, water and encourage people to take breaks and cool down.  
  • Work in partnership with event medical, security and World Pride venue staff.
