Thought about volunteering for a not-for-profit organisation in the southern suburbs of Adelaide or Fleurieu Peninsula? Not sure about taking the next step? People volunteer for a number of different reasons, ranging from a desire to learn new skills, gain credible work experience, have fun, help others, form new friendships, develop and maintain self esteem or to make a difference. Others are looking to fulfil their 15-hour Centrelink obligation. Some people are completely devoted to the cause, whilst others simply wish to do their bit where they can. The time and commitment required to be a volunteer varies with each position. It's important though to ensure that your availability is consistent and you can be counted on to be reliable.
