Volunteers are the heart of South Alive
The South Alive volunteers are the inspiration and strength of our organisation, and they are the people who make our projects happen. ‘Many hands make light work’, we are always keen for more people to join us. It’s also a great way to make new friends.
There are all kinds of ways to volunteer
Your help will be deeply appreciated, and we can find a role or job that will suit you. Some examples of the different ways you could volunteer include:
- Joining a team, that means you are working with others on a regular basis to manage the team's projects.
- If you prefer to work when it suits you, you could choose volunteer opportunities that can be done in your own time - for example, adopting a street in the Zero Rubbish project or adopting a pop-up garden to plant and keep weeded.
- Doing a specific job, when you can commit to a day/time in advance, e.g. staffing our artspace during exhibitions, helping with administration etc.
- Volunteering from time to time, on a casual basis, when it suits. We can contact you when we're doing working bees, have events on or have other jobs we need help with tasks such as stuffing envelopes or putting up posters. Even with working bees, there are a range of tasks to suit all abilities, including making morning tea, transporting things and more.
