Are you looking for the best way to utilise your valuable corporate volunteer days as well as have some fun?
Parkerville Children and Youth Care can always do with your help
We are one of Western Australia's oldest and most respected charities and have been providing care and protection to vulnerable children and youth in need for over a century.
As we rely on the support and generosity of the Western Australian community, the time, skills and commitment given by volunteers are valuable resources to us, as they make a real difference to the lives of the children and youth we support. Our historic main campus is situated in the picturesque eastern hills of Perth, just 15 minutes from Midland. We also have a base of operations in Armadale at the George Jones Child Advocacy Centre and operate 'cottages' throughout the metroplitan area. We can cater for both big or small groups and can offer a range of work at a number of sites.
Where possible, our corporate volunteering experiences engage the assistance of the Education, Employment and Training (EET) programme enabling volunteers to work alongside young people who avail of our programmes and services and directly benefit from the work of the volunteers. It is a great opportunity for our volunteers to gain a greater understanding of the issues facing these young people and how they benefit from their involvement with Parkerville Children and Youth Care.
Timings, locations and dates are all very flexible as our aim is to work to your requirements to ensure a fulfilling and fun day for all. Volunteer tasks can include:
- General gardening upkeep
- Landscaping projects
- General building maintenance (e.g. painting, fencing etc.)
- Special event preparation and administration assistance
- Special projects
