Volunteer organisation stories

Student volunteers gain skills working with patients

Sixty-three patients in the Geelong region were recently prescribed an eight-week outdoor physical activity program by their local general practitioners. Students from the Gordon Institute developed a 'Park Fun' session for the patients as part of their Diploma of Sport Development. Read more about this Green Referrals program.

When volunteering presents new life experiences

A group of young people studying Life Skills at St Laurence were keen to visit the Geelong Veterans Cycling Club as volunteers, to add to their life experiences. Read their story.

Being part of the team

The Berwick Junior Football Club has grown so much over the years they have separated its volunteers into three levels: a committee level, a team level, and its players. They are working to ensure that their players become involved in the club and throughout the community and that each parent has the opportunity to participate on game day. Read their story.
