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

Let’s recognise
and reward great youth work…

 

Wa youth

The WA Youth Awards were established in 1999 to recognise young Western Australians aged 12 to 25 years for their achievements and contributions to the community. The Awards also reward outstanding youth groups and organisations that serve and support the state’s young people.
We are getting in touch to encourage you to nominate an outstanding youth worker in The Minister for Youth’s Most Outstanding Youth Worker Award.
This category recognises a WA youth worker that has made an outstanding contribution to their local community by doing paid or voluntary work in the youth service sector. This award is open to people of any age.
The category winner will be eligible for the WA Young Person of the Year Award if they are aged 12 to 25 as at Thursday 20 November 2013.

The applicant must have:

• demonstrated passion and commitment to improving conditions for young people in their community
• established sustainable partnerships and programs that benefit youth in their community
• delivered improved outcomes for young people in their community through their position
• demonstrated a significant commitment to the youth sector in Western Australia
• demonstrated high professional standards and a commitment to youth work principles.

Or you might know of a youth-led group or organisation that has made an outstanding contribution to the community and inspired others to participate actively in community life. These organisations can be nominated in the Organisational Achievement Award.
Nominations will close on Friday, 3 October, with the WA Youth Awards gala presentation dinner to be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on Thursday, 20 November.

Look back on 2013 Awards: Jessica Kain

Youth awards

Jessica Kain: Winner – Minister for Youth’s Most Outstanding Youth Worker Award

Jessica Kain devotes her life to improving the lives of young people with disabilities. Her approach to her work and her manner with young people is described as nothing short of inspiring. In December 2012, Jessica won the State Count Me In Award for Innovation and Excellence.

Currently working as coordinator for Inclusion WA’s Youth Connect Program, Jess works one-on-one with young people living with a disability and at risk of social isolation. Jessica works collaboratively with other organisations to improve outcomes for young people. She often works after hours and on weekends, giving up her time to help the young people she works with can enjoy more “normal” teenage experiences.
