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

Be the difference – be a Companion

 

Are you a caring, compassionate, empathetic person?

This week we are focusing on a specialised  position for big-hearted volunteers. We have a young 20 year old man who is in need of social interaction with other young people. He currently lives in an Aged Care facility in Mandurah and, like any young man, would very much benefit from companionship. For this position a caring and intelligent approach to a disabled person is essential, as is a willingness to be part of a team. The ability to follow direction from staff is also an essential skill component. By being his visiting companion you will be able to give him a change of scenery by going out on walks, maybe listening to music or watching a movie. We are ideally looking for young caring, compassionate male volunteers.  You could really make a wonderful difference in this young man’s life!
