So you want to join a tight-knit, awesome community?

Volunteer Benefits:

  • Belong to a fun community: joining the Date My Mate community means meeting fun, like-minded people. We run monthly events for our community, such as happy hours, picnics, bowling, karaoke nights, dinners and more.
  • Be part of a great cause: we're serious about our mission of providing better ways for people to connect with each other. The digital world has brought many great things, but no one can argue that the worlds of dating and friendship have suffered.
  • Score a date: at each event giving a shout-out to volunteers involved is the norm. It's a great way to get exposure to an audience full of people looking for love, with many of our past volunteers being invited to follow up dates after the event .
  • Have loads of fun along the way: it's hard not to have fun when you're helping run events where friends pitch their single mates to a crowd! 
  • Help your CV: having Date My Mate on your resume is always a conversation starter, and we're always happy to provide a reference for a job or a university application too.
