Volunteering is a great way to contribute to our local community. We often have projects around grant writing, multimedia, event management, empowering community resilience, volunteer coordination and leading project activities.
We also welcome work experience placements for tertiary students undertaking courses relevant to working in the community.
If you have time and skills to offer over an extended period you may be able to lead in the creation of a new community project or activity.
For any further information , please call us on (03) 9386 7128 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below are our current volunteer opportunities.
The Menders and Makers sewing group is currently seeking those who love to sew or are keen on picking up the skill. The role is a fantastic way to connect with emerging local community initiatives in the northern suburbs.
The Menders and Makers program connects individuals within the wider community to share their passion for sewing and community building. Upcoming ventures may also include the creation of products for sale to further fund future projects in areas of social inclusion. For the costs of materials and equipment maintenance, a weekly gold coin donation is greatly appreciated.
The Early Years Program at Reynard Street supports the Australian Government’s Early Years Learning Framework. The Program has a strong emphasis on play-based learning, based on the research that shows that play is the best vehicle for young children’s learning and brain development. The program also recognises the importance of communication and language (including early literacy and numeracy), and social and emotional development of children aged 0 – 5 years.
The role of the Playgroup Assistant is to assist the Early Years Coordinator in running the Early Years Services at Reynard Street and provide support to Playgroups currently operating within the Program. You will assist preparation for and support of play based activities for children during play sessions. Our playgroups include a community playgroup, a three year old structured playgroup (similar to kindergarten in that it will be taken by a trained Children’s Services leader, but parents remain with their children). Playgroups provide a great opportunity for children aged 1-5 years (and carers) to participate in a range of social and creative activities.
This role will involve hands-on work within a small team of volunteers focusing on developing and maintaining a newly constructed Sensory Garden and Community Garden at Reynard Street Neighbourhood House. This role is a great way to become involved with a meaningful project, while meeting new people, and staying active and involved in your community. RSNH also welcomes suggestions for improvements and new ideas for the garden.
