Why Volunteer?

Volunteering or community service is fast becoming an essential part of a stand-out resume. Employers are looking for evidence of commitment, loyalty and a strong desire to contribute to the success of society all of which volunteering demonstrates.

Since opening its doors in October 1993 the Peel Volunteer Resource Centre has supported the growth of a community that values and supports volunteering. If this could be your kind of thing why not sign up today?

There are many reasons why people volunteer in their communities – The Universal Declaration on Volunteering best describes the values that PVRC follow and uphold-”volunteering brings to life the noblest aspirations of humankind – the pursuit of peace, freedom, opportunity, safety and justice for all people. Connections can be made across differences that push us apart so that we can live together in healthy, sustainable communities, working together to provide innovative solutions to our shared challenges and to shape our collective destinies.”

Please contact our Volunteer Referral Officers if you are interested in and able to be involved at volunteering@peelvolunteer.org.au

The search is on for the Peel Volunteer of the Year for 2014

The huge contribution which Volunteers make to others’ lives is immeasurable; they work in Sporting Clubs, Social Services, Community Groups and Emergency Services to enhance our lives in so many ways, all without payment. Some many give a few hours others work almost fulltime but they all have one thing in common, they care.

Organisations, community groups and clubs in the Shires of Serpentine-Jarrahdale, Boddington, Waroona, Murray and the City of Mandurah are encouraged to nominate their outstanding volunteers for these prestigious awards.

Nominees must have made a significant contribution to the Peel Community through their volunteering efforts. Be a volunteer with a not for profit, community group or sporting club.

Nominees must be over 25 yrs. to nominate for the Peel Volunteer of the Year and under 25yrs. to nominate for the Youth Volunteer of the Year. And this year we have a new category of Sport & Recreation Volunteer of the Year.

We would like to acknowledge our partners in these awards: City of Mandurah, Shire of Murray, Dept. of Sport & Recreation and Alcoa Australia.

Nominations close Friday 31st October 2014 and winners will be announced at the Volunteer Awards Breakfast on Friday 5th December 2014, to which all nominees and nominators will be invited.

For further information contact PVRC on 9581 1187 or email manager@peelvolunteer.org.au
