Our youth volunteering programs are a great way for young people aged 14 – 21 to get involved in the community, develop new skills and hang out with like-minded young people. Many students use the program to contribute to their Duke of Edinburgh Award, Service Learning in the Community or CAS service commitment with weekly meetings being held at the Youth Development Centre. Volunteering programs run in roughly ten-week cycles, commencing at the beginning of each school term. Each program requires a commitment of at least 80% attendance from participants.
Vocal Rewind (Music and Events) volunteers are involved in organising and running live music events, View Finders (Environmental Sustainability) plan environmental campaigns and projects, F.R.E.S.H. (Food, Recreation, Education, Society and Health) take a holistic approach on wellbeing using food as platform for connection and Green Thumbs (Community Gardeners) work on creating a welcoming and sustainable youth garden.
