As our country’s only indigenous game, Australian football has been built on a community foundation since its establishment more than 150 years ago.
We take very seriously our obligation to be a positive influence in our community and we recognise the power of our sport in tackling and promoting social issues important to Australian society.
The development of the game at a community level is supported by an annual investment of more than $90 million. AFL players devote almost 20,000 hours annually to support game development programs as well as many other worthy causes.
Our game has a history of being inclusive, where everyone is welcome, regardless of social, cultural or economic background. This commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion remains at the very core of who we are.
Joining the AFL means having the opportunity to work with other highly talented people from diverse backgrounds who bring something unique to our organisation in the pursuit of making the AFL Australia’s leading entertainment and sporting companies.
V for 2 is the AFL’s Employee Volunteering Program, which provides employees with the opportunity to take 2 paid days each year to volunteer with some of the AFL ‘s Community Partners.
The program provides our employees with the opportunity to better connect with the community by volunteering their support and expertise to our associated partners that make such a significant, positive impact on the lives of our fans and the broader community.
The focus areas of the V for 2 program include, but is not limited to: Health and wellbeing, Indigenous affairs, Multiculturalism and Gender equality.
