National Volunteer Week 2023

National Volunteer Week 2023

Monday, 15 May to Sunday, 21 May 2023

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteering. The theme for National Volunteer Week 2023 is The Change Makers.

Our vision is for volunteering to be at the heart of Australian communities. We are the Change Makers.

The campaign recognises the vital support that the millions of volunteers in our country provide to their communities and encourages people to consider volunteering. National Volunteer Week 2023 is a celebration of our power to drive change and ensure volunteering is inclusive of all members of the Australian community.

Thank you to EMC volunteers

We would like to take this opportunity to thank each of our volunteers for their hard work and dedication. EMC Director Nicole Wiggins has said, “the staff, board and guests of the EMC appreciate the dedication of all our volunteers and the wonderful, caring way in which they generously provide their time.”

Happy National Volunteer Week to all EMC volunteers. The centre would not be possible without the help of this amazing team of people.

Volunteer celebration

We’re holding an event for Early Morning Centre volunteers and their partners on Friday, 19 May from 4.30pm to 6.30pm at the EMC. If you haven’t yet received your invitation, please let us know.

Interested in becoming a volunteer?

We have two main volunteering opportunities: preparing and serving breakfast between 7am and 9am or working in the community hub for a few hours between 9am and 2pm.

We’re also seeking volunteers for a range of unique opportunities, such as an instructor for our guitar jam sessions and cooking classes, someone to lead our arts and craft sessions, and more. We can be flexible to work around your schedule.
