What is the National Resilience Project?

The National Resilience Project was borne from necessity. A series of droughts, cyclones, bushfires, floods and the COVID-19 pandemic in Australia highlighted the need to revolutionise how we can harness the digital skills of our community.

When WithYouWithMe (WYWM), a social impact tech company began to address the global digital skills shortage they soon realised the shortage applied more critically to digital volunteers. A new and increasingly crucial category of volunteerism.

WYWM’s core business is their revolutonary testing and training software, designed to identify tech talent and provide digital and cyber qualifications through online learning.

After discovering the gap in the digital volunteerism sector they launched their own initiative, The National Resilience Project. WYWM’s cyber testing and training software will enable thousands of digital volunteers to upskill through digital learning pathways to best prepare for times of National need.

Our digital community
is the only employment and skills marketplace that connects digital volunteers with both paid and unpaid opportunities.

Digital volunteerism

Digital volunteers use their digital skills to support a cause or organisation remotely.

In the context of preparation, response and recovery from crisis, disaster, and emergency situations it is crucial to understand the importance of volunteerism in the digital and cyber domains.

Communication platforms and services allow people to stay connected with each other, their organisations and to access and transmit critical information.

6 Digital Pipelines to grow your organisations

Data analytics icon

Data Analytics

Data Analytics is about solving problems with Data. The spread of the COVID 19 virus through geographical areas is just one example of data analysis driving decisions during an emergency.
Automation icon


Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a technology that allows volunteer organisations to automate repetitive, manual tasks through the use of software robots. The software bots can interact with digital systems, such as software applications, in the same way that a human would, freeing up time for people on the ground to focus on higher value work.
Cyber security icon

Cyber Security

A cyber volunteer is a person who uses their technology or cybersecurity skills to support a cause or organisation. They may assist with tasks such as digital security, data privacy, or IT support.
Software development icon

Software Development

Software development spans coding fundamentals to creating a website. The recent rapid development of COVID 19 apps, websites and QR codes was made possible by an army of software developers.
Systems Administrator icon

Systems Administration

Sysadmins are responsible for the upkeep, configuration and operation of computers and networks. Keeping networks functional is a key task to ensure national resilience across a range of Australian government departments.
Project management icon

Project Management

Digital project management helps volunteer organisations in a crisis by streamlining communication and collaboration, increasing efficiency, and reducing errors. By using digital tools and processes, volunteer coordinators can quickly allocate resources, track progress, and ensure that tasks are completed on time. Digital project management also enables remote volunteer coordination and collaboration, allowing organisations to respond to a crisis more quickly and effectively.
