Everyone benefits from volunteering. Students benefit from life skills and experiences of volunteers.
Volunteers benefit from having a sense of belonging, and research shows that volunteers are happier and healthier as a result of helping others.
Volunteer times are to be negotiated with the school of your choice. You will be supported by the school to get a DECD approved Relevant History Screening and be provided with an induction which includes participation in the Responding to Abuse and Neglect - Education and Care session for volunteers.
