Get Involved

There are many ways you can get involved in this movement to DO POLITICS DIFFERENTLY!

By becoming involved, you will help improve democracy and representation of our community, meet like minded people, make friends and have fun along the way.


Wondering how to get involved with V4M and help to build the community powered politics movement in Monash?

Join a Working Group! These have been established to provide pathways for people to connect with the work of V4M in ways that best match their skill set and interest. Each group has a leader who coordinates the activities and gives and receives input from the Executive Committee to make sure all the groups stay working in an efficient, coordinated and effective way.

Please connect with a group that suits your skills, experience or passion - Communications, People, Events and Research - via the group leaders below:

Collating and analysing community feedback, providing data for other working groups

We need all the help we can get to build the momentum in Monash to Do Politics Differently. By contributing just a little (or a lot) of your time and energy is a practical way to show what you think is important in the world. Working with others towards a shared goal is great fun, builds community, and empowers us all to make the world a better place. We’d love you to join us!
