Greater Dandenong Volunteer Resource Service
01 February 2015
The City of Greater Dandenong has teamed up with South East Volunteers to create the Greater Dandenong Volunteer Resource Service - a new volunteer resource service in the local area.
This exciting new initiative will provide a personalised service to assist organisations in finding the right volunteer. This will be done through either face to face interviews or over the phone.
The Greater Dandenong Volunteer Resource Service will also screen and train volunteers for placement within local community organisations, creating a strong community sector as well as deliver training to managers who work with volunteers so that volunteers receive strong support.
The opportunities through voluntary work are many and varied. Not-for-profit organisations include volunteers in roles related to arts, culture, education, environment, health, emergency services, sport and international development. Volunteers might be involved in research, retail sales, home maintenance or food preparation. Volunteers can be any age or nationality and are invited to discover the number of opportunities available to them.
South East Volunteers has been supporting the community since 1985. They connect volunteers with opportunities in community organisations. Each year more than 1600 volunteers are placed in over 400 community service organisations.
