Jeans for Genes Day 2021 - Expression of Interest


Event Description:

Jeans for Genes Day will be back on Friday 6 August 2021!


What is Jeans for Genes Day?

2020 saw the whole world change and adapt. Jeans for Genes Day was very different and we explored our online capacity to raise awareness and funds for Children's Medical Research Institute.


As fantastic and different as that was - we want to be back out on the streets, shopping centres and train stations in 2021!


Jeans for Genes, the iconic fundraising campaign of Children’s Medical Research Institute, needs volunteers like YOU! Without medical research, we will not be able to beat children's genetic diseases like cancer, cystic fibrosis, metabolic disorders, retinal diseases and more. Your support will help us continue the vital research being done in our labs.

Friday 6 August 2021 is the big day, so get your denim ready and volunteer for this incredible cause.


Volunteer Roles available

We will have opportunities Australia-wide and there’s no experience necessary - all you need to do is turn up on the day full of enthusiasm!

  • General Volunteer - Selling Jeans for Genes Day merchandise and promoting the cause.
  • Location Leader - Supporting and managing a location and general volunteers on the day. 
  • State Leader - Supporting and managing Location Leaders and locations in your state prior to the event and on event day. 


Shifts for Jeans for Genes Day 2021 are yet to be confirmed. Once you register your interest, we will email you when shifts are open.
