Volunteer in your communityJanuary 10, 2020
Why is this a good time to volunteer in your community?
It’s a new year, and a good time to do something new. You may already have made a New Year’s resolution to make a difference this year; with the JNC, you can have an immediate impact locally. We’re seeking volunteers in the Randwick and Waverley local government areas, the inner city and Glebe.
“Volunteers make an extraordinary contribution to Australian society. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our community and come from all walks of life: working people, students and professionals, young people and retirees, from every town and community.”Volunteering NSW
