In October we ‘raised the roof’ at the Arts Centre

recognising the wonderful work our volunteers do:

not just in mentoring but across our whole organisation.

As you all know, our volunteers tutor, teach, mentor, coach and

support our mentees with everything from being there through

a personal crisis to helping them learning how to play soccer or

basketball. Volunteers also support our childcare centres to create

happy, safe spaces for early learning. They help us in the backyard

blitzes that transform playgrounds at our Preschools and Childcare

centres and with raising money at events such as Run Melbourne.

Volunteers also help us in our administration centre at Ricketts

Road, doing everything from graphic design to answering the

telephone. Whatever way they contribute, all of them teach the

rest of us the real meaning of charity.
