Are you interested in contributing your time and skills to help support groups within the local community?
Then come along to the Whitehorse Volunteer Expo to find out about the many fun and rewarding opportunities available to you.
The City of Whitehorse and Eastern Volunteers are hosting the Volunteer Expo to showcase the wide range of volunteering opportunities available in the community. A huge variety of organisations that operate in the City of Whitehorse and beyond will be on display at the Volunteer Expo, which will be held at the Box Hill Town Hall on Wednesday 2nd May.
Attendees will be able to talk to local not-for-profit organisations to find out more about the volunteer opportunities available – including protecting the environment, tutoring, delivering meals, emergency services, assisting people with disabilities, arts and recreation programs, relief services, animal support and much more.
Volunteering can be enormously rewarding. Through their activities, volunteers have fun, meet new people, gain new skills, support a cause and put something back into the community.
Research has shown there has been a shift away from formal structured volunteering roles to less formal roles. This enables people working long hours and time poor families more flexibility when considering taking up a volunteer role. The changing face of volunteering is making it easier for everyone to get involved.
The Whitehorse Volunteer Expo will be held at the Box Hill Town Hall, 1022 Whitehorse Road Box Hill 3128, on Wednesday 2 May from 1pm to 6pm.
