“Jump In” – Volunteer
“JUMP IN” – INSPIRE VOLUNTEERING IN MORETON BAY
RDA Moreton Bay provided support to a project undertaken by the Pine Rivers Neighbourhood Centre, to profile volunteering in the region, increase awareness of volunteering opportunities and to enable volunteer organisations to advertise, to network and to learn.
A volunteering Booklet has been developed where organisations who take in external volunteers with regular programs and training, can register their details for potential volunteers to make contact. To have your organisation registered in any booklet update you need to contact Chris at Pine Rivers Neighbourhood Centre, Tel: 32052955.
During Volunteering Week a Volunteering Expo was held on 11th May at Narangba Community Centre, in collaboration with the Workforce Development Council. Participants celebrated volunteering, found out more about volunteering, had the chance to network with other organisations and to find out more about organisations community members can volunteer with and what is involved.
For copies of the Booklet go to Council, local libraries, key community facilities and Pine Rivers Neighbourhood Centre.
