MDSI supports volunteering as an integral part of Australian society. Volunteering at MDSI allows people to make a meaningful and worthwhile contribution to the wider community of Macarthur. By becoming a volunteer at MDSI you have an opportunity to contribute to the unique efforts of MDSI in the local community, especially to the culturally and linguistically diverse communities throughout the Macarthur region.
Roles of Volunteers
MDSI volunteers help in a variety of programs. People receiving volunteer help have different needs, some require social assistance and others practical assistance, some are from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, some are refugees and others are struggling with family, educational or health problems. Our volunteer programs include:
- Helping families connect with the community
- Helping children in playgroups
- Assisting frail aged people with shopping or home visits
- Tutoring young people
- Teaching English
- Social visits
Volunteers have their own unique and valuable skills, some are excellent teachers others are fantastic at fixing things, one may help a high school student with their maths and another may help a frail aged person go shopping, others may love playing with children or driving a bus to the markets.
There are currently no volunteer opportunities available. Our next volunteer recruitment drive will commence in February 2013.
