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

Volunteer Position of the Week

Reach Out Drop In Centre Volunteers

Setup and Pack-up Helper

Grant Writer

 

Reach Out Drop In Centre Inc. is centrally located in town and was originally formed in response to the fact that no other organisation was providing meals to those less fortunate in Mandurah. Initially operating one evening a week, it has grown to now cover three evenings, and a Saturday each week. The centre has reported a steady increase in numbers since it’s establishment in early 2012, now regularly helping as many as 158 people per week while continuing to offer assistance to new clients each week. Throughout the year the centre holds regular fund-raising events and information sessions, continuing to bring awareness to the organisation and what they are achieving in our community.

The centre’s team is currently looking to add to it’s wonderful team of volunteers to assist them in two areas. Regular setup and pack-up help is needed at the centre, along with Grant Writers being needed to assist the centre with its financial matters. As a volunteer, other duties occasionally may be asked of you while helping out at the centre.
