Introduction to Volunteering

Throughout each year we offer seminars, workshops and training through our Nhill and Horsham offices, as well as via webinar, for volunteers and managers / coordinators of volunteers. Such sessions can always be tailored to suit a particular organisation and they provide information and support to potential volunteers to assist with understanding volunteering in the current environment.

The sessions are informal workshops which introduce those new [or people wishing to refresh their knowledge] to the dynamics of volunteering.

Topics include:

  • Benefits of volunteering
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • Skill Identification
  • Rights & responsibilities
  • The right position for you

For organisations, we can customise these sessions to cater for new volunteers at a general cost and membership cost. Over the previous 12 months, 44 sessions were conducted in Horsham and through the Hindmarsh, West Wimmera and Northern Grampians Shire.
